Gary Bourgeous, Paul Wong, Jeanette Reinhardt and Gina Daniels

1984, 52:00 minutes, colour, English


A visual/aural non-linear narrative. A layering of ideas, facts, opinions, prejudices, fears, and styles. The story is based upon the innuendoes and interrelationships of four main character - Gary, Gina, Jeanette, and Paul. Distinct video forms are used to build the narrative and to handle the complex range of information and technical styles. The video's intent is to develop a broader understanding and tolerance by its viewers towards a new sexual attitude.

Adapted from Jeanette Reinhardt, ed., Video Out Distribution Catalogue, Vancouver: Satellite Video Exchange Society, 1990, p.21.

Récit non linéaire, visual et sonore, qui entremêle les concepts et les faits, les points de vue, les styles, les craintes et les préjugés. L'histoire repose sur les malentendus qui caractérisent les rapports entre quatre personnages principaux, Gary, Gina, distinctes pour construire le récit et pour rendre la complexité des enjeux techniques et de l'information transmise. L'oeuvre sollicite la tolérance et la compréhension du spectateur à l'endroit des comportements sexuels différents.

Adapté de Video Out Distribution Catalogue, sous la direction de Jeanette Reinhardt, Vancouver, Satellite Video Exchange Society, 1990 p.21.
