Vietnam, 1967, near Duc Pho (reconstruction after Hiromichi Mine)

2001, single-channel video projection, colour, silent, 3 min loop

This work shows the landscape in Ha Phan (near Duc Pho) filmed 33 years after the crash of a twin-engine Caribou aircraft. The plane was shot down in a friendly fire incident while trying to land on an airstrip. Images for this reconstruction were taken in November 2000, at the end of the Monsoon season, when the sun and clouds provide a naturally theatrical light over the valley.
