Travels In The Combat Zone

Doris Chase

1983, 30:00 minutes, colour, English


This inventive video renders poet Jessica Hagedorn's views of "some of the harsh and beautiful realities of city living" for women in a man's world. Hagedorn's poetry is musical, pungent and gutsy. The visual artistry of Doris Chase emphasizes different aspects of Hagedorn's lyrics. Images are dissected, quartered, washed with memory wipes that support and underscore the image and poetic meaning.
