Within Dialogue (Silence)

Su Rynard

1987, 05:40 minutes, colour, English


Within Dialogue (Silence) begins with a bright, colourful scene of a man and woman in a restaurant. The viewer is then led through the cool and silent interior of a chic, white apartment. This journey is continued by the woman in the tape, who, we discover, must secretly distance herself from her life, and her life style, which consists of empty aesthetics and unfulfilled desires. The tape ends with a conversation between the woman and the man that not only reflects a glaring lack of communication, it serves to underline the isolation of women.
