In Lovecidal: Walking with the Disappeared, the feminist filmmaker and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha offers a lyrical and poetic meditation on a wounded world mired in perpetual conflict. This artistic book, defying conventional categorisation, draws attention to everyday gestures of dissent by the seemingly powerless that invite us to see love as a creative, transformative act that has the capacity to challenge our conversations on militarism, violence and the meaning of ‘victory’, writes Madeline McSherry.
