Revealed Silence

Ric Amis

1983, 10:25 minutes, colour, English


This tape speaks to the concerns of men and women living together. It's basis is the need for people to discuss and improve their relationships with one another. As women move outside of the house and begin to work, raise children, run the home; their previous relationships with men become outmoded and strained. As codes and ethics change, the traditional roles of men and women are left in a vacuum, with organized family roles ("the nuclear family") having to be re-defined. It portrays the interaction and the tragedy of women contained by, and living in, their silence.
