THE FARMERS AND THE HELICOPTERS

This 3-channel video installation produced in collaboration with Dinh Q. Le explores the relationship of Vietnamese farmers and their memories of helicopters during the U.S. – Viet Nam conflict. This video work weaves documentary footage of Mr. Tran Quoc Hai, a farmer who built a working helicopter out of farming equipment, footage from Hollywood films about the Vietnam War and news footage shot during the war.

The Farmers and the Helicopters is now part of the permanent collection at MOMA in New York.Check out more at MOMA.org​.
