Love Roller Coaster

Christine Martin

1986, 08:00 minutes, colour, English


This tape examines the meaning of leisure, the promise and the fear. Using the format of a typical advertisement, the image of leisure becomes a metaphor for the fiction of pleasure and the simulation of emotion. The question is asked "Is our desire for levity, liberation and love trivialized by the entertainment industry?"
