The Nam


Fiona Banner

The Nam


Large-scale artist's book composed solely of text by Banner that follows the plots of the Vietnam War films : "Full Metal Jacket," "The Deer Hunter," "Apocalypse Now," "Born on the Fourth of July," "Hamburger Hill," and "Platoon." Banner's text describes plot, actions, visuals, and texts from the films in a continuous run-on stream reflecting her viewing the films end-to-end.
