Beauty, Passion, and Power - part 2 of Manufactured Romance

Anne Ramsden

1983, 20:00 minutes, colour, English


"This is the second part of a three-part series in which I attempt to both use and transform the television soap-opera format to explore a variety of concerns such as narrative structure, representation, deconstruction, popular romance, interpersonal relationships and psychoanalysis. The series addresses aspects of woman's experience by using a fictional format that mimics soap opera's attention to daily life and intimate relationships, traditionally female concerns meant to appeal to the female television viewer." -A.R.
