Dick & Jane (Spot And Puff)

Nora Hutchinson

1989, 22:00 minutes, colour, English


Dick & Jane refers to the primary school book based on these characters. Used in the educational system during the 1950's and 1960's, the book is a symbol for notions of false safety. Dick and Jane are examples of perfect lives in a perfect environment. They experience no pollution, no fear, no poverty,... until Jane changes, that is. She then becomes the weathervane introducing political and social issues which affect us all.
