The award-winning UC Berkeley professor's seventh feature-length film is a tribute to Kenji Miyazawa's novel Milky Way Railroad. Trinh's film tells the story of three young people on a spiritual journey. The tale presents itself as a series of images through a train window.

Trinh's other films include The Fourth Dimension, A Tale of Love, Shoot for The Contents, Surname Viet Given Name Nam, Naked Spaces - Living in the Round and Reassemblage.

A multiple National Endowment for the Arts recipient and a Guggenheim fellow, Trinh Minh-ha is also an accomplished author and composer. Her list of books includes 1999's Cinema Interval, 1996's collaboration with Jean-Paul Bourdier Drawn from African Dwellings and 1992's Framer Framed. Her musical pieces include "Poems" and "Four Pieces for Electronic Music."
