John, great of you to reach out with your film. First, I would need a download
link rather than a DVD. Secondly some more info about the film. Is it likely
to stir emotions for the Vietnamese in a bad way ? Where was you based during
the Vietnam/American war ?
You have such an impressive CV in terms of academia I would sure like to have
your name in the program along with a little blurb from yourself about your
feelings behind the film.
I am based in North Vietnam. This is my first time organizing an event in
Vietnam and I have to go through many official avenues and my proposals will be
scrutinized... so please do not think I am trying to censor content of the
program ... rather it is the case of having to be culturally sensitive. I am
working with no budget... basically starting this project up myself from
scratch. I am a film studies student basically taking a year out. This is my
third time living in Vietnam.
I would not be able to pay any screening fees.

I made a film in 1984 called "Aspects of a Certain History". It is about the
history of the American war in Vietnam where I was a soldier with the 9th
Infantry Division in 1967-68. It is an experimental art work, 60 minutes, not
a straight doc. I have been thinking about showing it again in 2014, the 30th
anniversary of its release. I'd love to have it screened in Vietnam. It has a
feel of early, politically radical Goddard and a little James Benning. I'll
send you a dvd if you like. I have a web site "johnknechtart.com". There is
nothing about the film on the site but you can find out more about me there.
Send me your surface address if you would like a dvd copy of the film which was
originally shot, edited and released in 16mm in 1984.

I am looking to see if anyone on this listserv is interested in having work
shown in Halong City, Vietnam. I am organizing an artist residency and will
have access to a screening area.
