Thùy Trang Nguyễn & akiko soyja
Apr 2022 - May 2022
Thùy Trang Nguyễn is passionate about deconstructing normative gazes and creating inclusive spaces and tools for visual storytelling. How we preserve and tell stories defines how we remember. Remembering means we will not be erased. So their movies talk about emotional and physical resilience throughout generations in the diaspora. Eating, sleeping, resting is their approach to resilience.
akiko soyja is moved by interruptions of binary thinking, by how we can connect various struggles and movements, and what societies do to our bodies. They feel rested when they spend time outside with friends, when their phone is turned off, when they come back to their body and when eating homemade meals.
