Ekleipsis

T. Kim-Trang Tran
1998, US, color, 23 min.

Ekleipsis is an experimental documentary that traces two histories: the Cambodian Civil War and hysteria, to speak about pathology and agency. To transcend what has been described as the ‘eye-searing’ horrors of war, these women cried themselves into blindness.
