As A Wife Has A Cow: A Love Story
1985, 45:00 minutes, colour, English
The traditional tough-talking cowboy is replaced with the "Marlboro Woman". Sensationalism is turned into mundane rural realism. The mundane becomes meaningful again and reconfirms that the landscape is indifferent to gender and stereotyping, at the same time it maintains its intimacy and lyricism. A portrait of a woman develops as she tells different stories which eventually reveal her charismatic character. Confrontation with the mass media representation of women has been deliberately subdued. The aim of the work is the restitution of female imagery without confrontation.
