Tammy, The Millionaire, The G-7 And The Protestors

Michael Connolly

1989, 07:15 minutes, colour, English


Tammy, The Millionaire, The G-7 And The Protesters, is both an iconoclastic critique of the Conservative government's continentalist agenda and a deconstruction of Hollywood cinema. Combining video with computer graphics, Brian Mulroney becomes "Tammy", the young backwoods, riverboat character in the old American melodramas. Extremely naive and impressed by wealth and power, the classic "Tammy" endears herself to the rich with her eager desire to please and her backward cultural mannerisms. Intercut with the "Tammy" scenes are sequences of opposition-video from the Toronto protests against the Group of Seven Economic Summit.
