Fiona Banner: The Nam [Rare]


Member Price

The Nam is an all text flick book. It is a compilation of descriptions of well known films about Vietnam: Full Metal Jacket, The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse NowBorn on the Fourth of July, Hamburger Hill, and Platoon. The films apparently never begin or end, but are described in their entirety, spliced together to make a gutting 11 hour supermovie.

Banner describes the films as if she is there, not influencing the plot, but always on set running alongside the action. The Nam is a constantly present, seamless account of the films.
