September 13–26, 2020

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Nguyễn Trinh Thi's Landscape Series #1 (2012), on view from Sunday, September 13 through Saturday, September 26, 2020.

This film is composed of found photographs from newspaper reports that show people pointing into a seemingly empty landscape—something often found in Vietnamese newspapers as photographers usually arrive at the scene of an event only after it has taken place. Landscape Series #1 is an eerie yet humorous reminder that past events are always beyond our grasp.

Landscape Series #1 is presented here as one of four films in Part Three | Decolonizing the Landscape: From Invisible to Visible, the third of six programs in the online film and discussion series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory programmed by Lukas Brasiskis for e-flux Video & Film.

Ecology After Nature runs from August 14 through November 8, 2020. The films in Part Three will screen for two weeks, and subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
