Electra Tries To Speak

Doris Chase

1982, 28:00 minutes, colour


Electra, the eternal daughter, struggles for self-expression, seeking to resolve her own confusion amidst the conflicting roles and expectations thrust upon her by others. In this modern interpretation of the classical Greek tragedy coherence overlaps with freeze-frame confusion. The clear determined statement is always blurred with flitting doubts. With the sharp, cogent script and the vital, infinitely varied playing of Sondra Segal, Electra becomes as much an experience as a performance.
