In her films and installations Nguyễn examines issues concerning society and history—especially the complex, traumatic history of her home country Vietnam and its after-effects in the present. Nguyen uses montage to compose her work, drawing on different image media, from her own audio and visual recordings to found footage and still images from postcards, photography, newsreels, Hollywood films and ethnographic footage.
