Answer one of the three questions below. 300 word minimum. Don’t forgetto include quotes and page numbers and to use analysis and evaluation. Whenanalyzing film and poetry, cite specific language that is used and analyze! I provided lecture pdf, grading rubric pdf. In addition, I provided supplemental PDFs to use to answer the question!
1. What factors, according to Yen Le Espiritu, have led to the invisibility of Southeast Asianexperiences in dominant media representations of the Vietnam War? How does this silenceperpetuate war trauma? How does storytelling/1.5 generation poetry work through and makevisible this history of war trauma? Anida Yoeu Ali seems to suggest a “debt” to those who havebeen lost rather than a debt to the US for providing refuge and freedom. Closely analyze thelanguage and imagery of the poem(s).
2. “Kelly Loves Tony” represents the experiences of two 1.5 generation Mien youth. While thisfilm is produced “independently” by an Asian American film maker, how might it still beparticipating in “controlling ideas” about Asian women who need to be saved from theiroppressive cultures? What other dominant ideas do you see the film supporting? For example,explore the film’s polarization of Asian women (Kelly) as desirable and Asian men (Tony) asundesirable? Is there a dominant image of a “model minority,” or what Mimi Nguyen calls“refugee exceptionalism”?
3. What are some characteristics of the 1.5 generation according to Zhou and Ocampo? How doyou see these characteristics represented in the poetry of Bao Phi and Anida Yoeu Ali? How doPhi and/or Ali re-figure what Mimi Nguyen calls “refugee exceptionalism” that is based on the“debt of freedom” to the US? How might they refigure the idea of “debt” to include loss andtrauma? Closely analyze the language and imagery of the poem(s).
