Overview

Thiện Đỗ/The Propeller Group, 2010, 45 min., DVD

Based in Saigon and Los Angeles, The Propeller Group is an art collective that often focuses on mass media in the hope of redefining the social and political understanding of contemporary cultures. The group is the producer of the miniseries Porcelain, which aired on Vietnamese television in 2010. In this first of three episodes, the historical events surrounding a cursed shipment of porcelain from Asia to Europe in the 17th century intertwine with the lives of contemporary Vietnamese characters.
