Big in Vietnam and Other Shorts by Mati Diop


France. Atlantiques, 2009, 15 mins. Digital projection; Snow Canon, 2011, 33 mins. 35mm.; Big in Vietnam, 2012, 28 mins. DCP. Best known for her performance in Claire Denis’s 35 Shots of Rum, Mati Diop is steadily acquiring international recognition as a director of intimate and intense narrative portraits. Her three most recent shorts vary widely in subject—a tragic voyage over the Moroccan border; a coming-of-age seduction in the Alps; and a chance meeting between two Vietnamese expats in the streets of Marseilles—but they share brilliant experimental approaches to film structure and form.
