Strategic Approximation: Independent Videographers Revise the Hollywood classic
Feminist Media Studies Journal, Mar. 2008, v. 6, no. 1, p. 19
In Janice Hladki's article, Strategic Approximation, she puts into review two collaborative videographic works by Toronto based Female artists: B.H. Yael and Johanna Householder. The works described by Hladki are re-creation's of two, infamous, Hollywood films (Apocalypse Now and 2001 Space Odyssey). Hladki goes on to describe the two feminist artists works, which she claims "provoke and trouble the social, spatial, political, and identity narratives of the scenes in said classic movies."
The review also details the approaches each artist made in their collaborative efforts and describes the technical aspects each artists specialize in, as well as their intentions in remaking the scenes from each film.
