United Kingdom, 1978
Avant-Garde, Short


A woman’s voice reads text by Gertrude Stein. A loose narrative takes shape from a series of collaged photographs, including one of a bloodstained bed. In this film, as in her others, Rhodes explores the power relationships present in both ‘the grammar of looking and the grammar of language’.
