I Want to Live in the Country (and Other Romances)

Directed by Joan Jonas
United States, 1976
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Loss, displacement, time and memory permeate this haunting nonlinear narrative, which unfolds like a dream in the process of telling itself. Jonas is seen watching video images that metaphorically relate to the dreams, reveries and memories that she is heard reading from her journal.
