Join FSU School of Dance faculty members Kehinde Ishangi and Tiffany Rhynard as they discuss their film-in-progress Not My Enemy.
Not My Enemy paints a picture of the traumatic and dehumanizing impact of the Vietnam War through the experiences of African-American soldiers. Weaving between a fictional narrative and real-life interviews with Vietnam veterans, the documentary dance film becomes a harrowing reminder of how an aimless and violent war left indelible scars on a generation of Black men. Those who made it out of Vietnam returned home only to find another war raging in their backyard, the battle for civil rights.
Inspired by dialogue with her father, a Vietnam veteran, choreographer Kehinde Ishangi examines the nightmare of combat, the deeply psychological aftermath, and the effort to heal from these lifelong wounds.
