THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL
ADYNATA


Country: United States
Year: 1983
Duration: 30'
Direction: Leslie Thornton

Sinopsis

A formal 1861 portrait of a Chinese Mandarin and his wife is the starting point for this allegorical and experimental investigation of the fantasies spawned in the West about the East, particularly that which associates femininity with the mysterious Orient. Adynata presents a series of oppositions-male and female images, past and present sounds-which in and of themselves construct a minimal and fragmentary narrative, an open text of our imaginations, fears and fantasies.
Festivals
