The Orientation Express

Frances Leeming

1987, 14:00 minutes


Leeming's wild world of cut-out animation provides an incisive look at three decades of the feminine mystique in North America as presented in Life Magazine. Familiar icons of American commercial culture,The Quaker Oats Man, Colonel Sanders and the Kool-Aid Jug appear as hosts to guide us through six humourous and densely-packed vignettes that challenge the arrogance of depicting women's lives as less than three-dimensional experience.
