They Shoot Pigs Don't They?

Penelope Buitenhuis

1989, 15:00 minutes, colour, English


Tormented by constant reminders and symbols of past revolutions, Yvonne envisions the takeover of ABC television by the "Woman Attack Pigs" Revolutionary Coalition. A manifesto is broadcasted by the group condemning police injustice and prejudice, and mass resistence to arrest is advocated. New York errupts into slapstick chaos. The police are not safe on the streets they are supposed to protect. But revolutions don't happen in a day and the group must eventually flee to Berlin. The spirit of revolution is a reawakened ghost.
