No Voice Over

Colin Campbell

1986, 27:00 minutes, colour, English


The tape focuses on the close bond between three women artists, and correspondence that occurs between them via audio and video tape as they travel to Italy, Brazil, and Texas. All three have an off screen working relationship with a producer called Dix-Ten. The tape details a series of visions or second-sight experiences that one woman has about the other. These events are disturbing and seem to contain some ominous portent, which remains unclear until the end of the tape, when it is revealed that the visions are in fact premonitions of one of the woman's death.
