Subject

Feminist, Woman Filmmaker, Experimental Documentary, Sexuality, Performance

Description

Acquired as research for Women of Vision from the distributors. I also used this film for classes in women's and feminist films. Yvonne was my teacher at the Whitney Program in the 1980s. She can be seen in the 4+ hours of research footage I shot for this project in NYC in 1990, along with 40 other media feminists, now online as part of the larger re-visit to this project published by Feminist Media Histories in 2019.

"Rainer's landmark film is a meditation on ambivalence that plays with cliche and the conventions of soap opera while telling the story of a woman whose sexual dissatisfaction masks an enormous anger." (IMDB)
