A Benefit for the Frameline Completion/Subtitling Fund She Must Be Seeing Things, Sheila McLaughlin's first feature is both very personal and nearly universal in its understanding of the dynamics of intimate relation­ ships. Funny, touching and very real, the story of Agatha, a lawyer, and Jo, her filmmaker girlfriend, is a deft exploration of jealousy 's effect on a lesbian relationship. Throughout the film Jo and Agatha's professional lives pose a striking contrast to the intimacy of their life together. The tension of their sexual attraction for each other and the details of that intimacy become a framework for the film's more explicit narrative, At the same time, the strength of their feelings comes to con­ stitute a parallel drama-one that starts a dialogue with the current debates over women's sexuality in the 80's as well as with current theories on the nature of voy­ eurism in contemporary cinema, Sheila McLaughlin comes from the world of down­

MAINSTREAMING Lesbian Filmmaking in the 80s

'

The last decade has seen a major increase in the pro­ duction of films and video works by and about lesbians. Now that more works are being made questions arise over what happens to these works in distribution and exhibition. How and when are these works released to the public? Are the distributor and director trying to reach the same audience? Should a film not be labeled a "lesbian" film so that it can reach a wider audience? A panel of women directors , artists and distributors will discuss the issues of mainstreaming and lesbian media. Panel members will include : Debra Zimmerman , Women Make Movies Sheila McLaughlin , Director Alexandra von Grote, Director Andrea Weiss, Author and Director Frances Reid , Cinematographer Barbara Hammer, Media Artists

ON GUARD

Australia, 1984 Winner of the Best First Feature' Award when shown at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 1984, On Guard is director Susan Lambert's story of a group of women who attack a segment of the medical! scientific establishment in Australia that they feel is potentially harmful to women's bodies and self-deter­ mination. There's more than one righteous dyke and lots of personal drama in the outfit. The assignment mess up the computer memory banks in the genetics institute.The risks : loss of jobs, life, limb, commitment, kids, cooperation and love. The complication : one of the would-be saboteurs has been keeping a diary of their plans, and has lost it. The reality : a dual paced thriller-adventure laced with conspiracy and caring. II

DOMESTIC BLISS

Great Britain, 1984 The conflicts in this carefully observed and knowing comedy/drama center around the relationship of Diana , a successful doctor and her lover, Emma, a divorced woman with a ten year old daughter. Diana invites Emma and daughter to live with her in her comfortable London home. They all get more than they bargained for, including visits from Emma's ex-husband , Emma's best friend Amelia who arrives with baby and dog , and a next door neighbor who has a bad habit of locking herself in the bathroom and crawling through Diana's window. Diana, loving but inflexible, is torn between her love for Emma and her need for structure and tran­ quility, Full of bright dialogue and a genuine chemistry between the excellent cast, the film depicts lesbians in a way rarely seen in the movies.

La Triche was screened at the NY Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, and impressed the Village Voice reviewer, who found it "a turn-on from beginning to end . . . Seldom have I seen an eye more knowing about sexual yearn­ ing , the ache . . . that can cramp existence for months, years. " La Triche is about the relationship between Michel , a cultured but disillusioned police inspector, and Bernard, a young nightclub musician, Michel (the handsome cousin in Cousin, Cousine) has a wife and young son. He has also always been bisexual , and had many one-night stands. He meets Bernard during an investigation , and the two experience a violent mutual attraction. The affair becomes a relationship, then gets complicated when the case under investigation adds a blackmail attempt and murder. Bernard is implicated , and Michel is placed in a dangerous and awkward posi­ tion. No longer primarily Bernard's lover, Michel must confront him, and is met with defiance. Throughout the film , the men's relationship is played out , sexual nuances and tension included , against the increasinly opposed roles of cop and suspect. A subtle film by writer/director Yannick Bellon, 64, who directs short films for screen and TV and has two other features to her credit.

BLOOD & ROSES:

Under the Spell of the Lesbian Vampire a presentation with film clips by Andrea Weiss Dracul a , that tal l, dark, handsome menace, has been give n some stiff competition over the years by an even more attractive fe male counterpart-the lesbian vam­ pire. Sh e has taken a variety of forms of expression in the cinema, which has relied loosely on lesbian vam­ pire tale s that date far back i n lite rature and legend . , 'Blood & Roses" will present an introduction to the various l esbian va mpire characters and themes found within the ho rro r fi l m genre. The va mpire is not a sim­ ple stereotype, but a complex figure whose function varies in accord ance with its context. The prepon­ derance of lesbian vampires in ho rror fi l ms invariably raises a number of questions: why is this such a recur­ ring the me? How is the lesbian vampire used and what do its imag es convey? How do lesbian vam pires diffe r from m ale vam p i res? Who do the fi lms address; who is their intended audience? Why i s lesbianism so con­ sistently linked to vam pirism? Can gay and lesbian audiences find anythi ng pleasurable or red eeming i n these fi lms? " Blood & Roses" will utilize film clips and slides from such films as The Hunger, The Vampire Lovers, Daughters of Darkness, Dracula's Daughter and others to analyze the meanings at work i n the l esbian va m­ pire cinema, and to explore what possi bil ities, if any, these fil ms hold for subversive reinterpretations by gay and lesbian audiences.

DAUGHTERS OF DARKN ESS Belgium/France/Germany/Spain, 1971 One of the most stylish ho rror fi l m s of the 1970 's, this lesbian vampire epic masterfully co mbines traditional horro r elements with outrageous-often ludicrous­ wit. It also expresses feminist themes and is decidedly anti-male, despite being d i rected by a man, Belgian writer/d irector Harry Kumel . A sadistic male chauvinist and his beautiful new bride miss th e i r boat to England and check i nto a deserted seaside hotel in modern­ day Belgium. A mysterious woman arrives with a young co mpanion who is both servant and lover. The mystery wo man claims to be Elizabeth Bathory, the name of the " Bloody Countess" who lived and murdered scores of virgins fo r their blood three centuries before. She becomes attracted to the bride and sets out to take her away from her new husgand. Daughters of Darkness movies fro m campy to sexy to ho rrifying and does it all with amazing o rig i nality. Kumel makes g reat use of sound, music, color (red especially) , cloth es, character place ment and wierd camera angles. The . creepy husband's mother is played by a man-director Fons Rademakers who makes a memorable contri bu­ tion to this h o rrifying , undeniably fun cult classic.

VERA Brazil, 1986 Vera is the story of a young wo man's strug gle to find her place in a world she finds h osti le and co mplex. An o rphan, she spends her youth in a children's home and her adolescence i n a boarding school . Vera's i m­ personal and isolated situation represses her emotions, and she responds by developing a masculine personal­ ity, and dominating the other girls. She leaves the o rphanage at 18, and with the help of a teache r finds a job i n a modern research center. There she meets Clara, an independent woman with a four-year-old son . Vera and Cl ara become friends, then more i nti mate. Vera's behavior becomes more extreme, and she tries to convince Clara and herself that she is a man . How­ ever, she doesn't find it as easy to impose her personal­ ity on her coworkers as she did at the o rphanage, and inevitable conflict develops. Cornered and alone, she confronts her personal truth: she is a man trapped in a woman's body. Writer/director S e rgio To ledo, 31, studied soci ology in the 70s and gained film experience working on documentaries and sho rts with Hector (Spider Woman) Babenco. Making Vera allowed Toledo to " express his own anxieties and uneasiness in a per­ sonal manner," according to the fil m notes. He d i d n't want to handle Vera's dilemma fro m a simple ho mo­ or tran sexual angle; the conte mp orary symbolism of being l iterally at odds with one's life i nterested him more.

Spain, 1984 Gloria works as a charwoman and does not have a minute to herself. Her own home alone would give her enough work to keep her busy all day long . She shares the small apartment with her chauvinist taxi-driver husban d , her mother-in-law, her two sons and a lizard . She is not a happy wo man. Like many housewives, she has not enjoyed the same opportunities as those of Caroline of Monaco. H e r husband is even stil l in love with a German woman he worked for fifteen years ago. Her twelve year old son has an attraction to his friends' fathers. His brother, age fourteen, is a smack dealer. So Gloria goes through her d ays clean ing , washing, i roning , cooking, taking the kids to the doctor, trying to get uppers, suffering cold turkey, never having an o rg asm, unable to afford the hairdresser, and never being chased by Madrid 's ten most sexy men. Gloria is reach ing the b reaking poi nt. Eve ntually everyone leaves (her husband in an outrageous incident of domestic violence), and at last she is alone.

But Simone reappears, and she and F rancoise begin to establ i s h a certai n d o m e stic routi ne-Francoise washes dishes while Si mone pl ays sol itai re. Little else is seen of their lives, apart o r togethe r, but within this context they argue, flirt, and act out a controlled fantasy. At issue is Simone's age (at least 20 years older than Francoise) and her inaccessibility-she will divulge nothing of her personal situation. Frustrated , Francoise struggles to integ rate the elegant Simone into her life on Si mone's terms and make sense of their l ove. Ehm's fi l m seems to parody many pretentious and symbolic avant garde fi l ms of the 60s with its mini mal dialogue and rituals. She uses color liberally as an ind icato r of mood and depth i n the wo men's relation­ ship. I nitially they wear bright yellow boots and F ran­ coise's apartment has yellow touches throughout. Then it changes to o range, red , burgundy, and bl ack. The device works, adding a cohesive ele ment to the fil m's fragmented structure. Both actresses are appealing in their respective roles, intrigued by each other but perhaps wary of a relatio nship g rounded in the reality of d aily life.

DAMNED IF YOU DON'T u.S.A., 1987 U.S. Premiere

Damned If You Don'tis a portrait of a young nun fighting a losing battle against her sexual desires, then sud­ denly awakened by the persistent attentions of a beautiful neighbor. The film combines narrative and experimental elements and draws on historical docu­ ments, among them testimony from the trial of a 17th century abbess accused of lesbian relations with another nun. The film also makes much use of Black Narcissus a "classic" nun film in which the "bad" nun admits her desire for a man and therefore dies. In Damned If You Don't not only does the nun finally admit her desire but finds great pleasure. Director: Su Freidrich 16mm, B/W, 43min.

THE LONDON STORY

Great Britain, 1986 This lively accessible spy spoof by Sally Potter revolves around the unlikely alliance of three eccentric characters and their mission to uncover government foreign policy duplicity. Beautifully and humorously set/choreographed against London's most famed locales in Technicolor! Director, Writer: Sally Potter 35mm, color, 15min.

THRILLER

Great Britain, 1979 Since its release in 1980, Thriller, Sally Potter's recon­ struction of Puccini's opera, "La Boheme" has become a classic in feminist film theor y and a model deconstruction of the Holly wood film and the conven­ tional role of women as romantic victims in fiction. As Ruby Rich wrote in her seminal review in the Chicago Reader" Thriller is the first feminist murder mystery. Sally Potter has syntheseized fantasy, wit and intellec­ tual rigor into a fresh, startling work. Like Deren and Rainer, she has retained a sense of timing, of enter­ tainment, and of audience . . .Thriller becomes an exemplary sign of how pleasure and how illuminating a new feminist art might be." Director: Sally Potter 16mm, B/W, 30min. Print sources: Women Make Movies, 225 Lafayette St., Suite 212, New York, NY 10012

DESERT OF LOVE 1986 San Francisco Premiere West Germany,

One of the most prolific European gay directors, Lothar Lambert began making underground films in the 1970's. Since then he has grown as both an actor and a director, though his films still create a certain amount of controversy. New Yorkers still remember the angry reaction to his Fucking City, a film that was called one of the ten best of 1982 by The Village Voice. His Paso Doble, about a bizarre German family's Spanish vaca­ tion (shown at the SFILGFF in 1985) was his first main­ stream success. Desert of Love, a bitter, funny look at the failures of human relationships has been called both his rawest and cruelest film, and a clever pastiche. The story centers around a director's ruined film­ most of which was inadvertently destroyed at the lab. It is a wild mosaic of startling imagery including a safe­ sex foot-fucking scene with toes in a condom, a woman flasher, and a woman voyeur in a wheelchair who com­ ments on the street life near a public toilet. Desert of Love is a challenging, highly original work from one . of Germany's most exciting gay talents.

THE PASSION OF REMEMBRANCE

Great Britain, 1986 Produced by the Sankofa Black Workshop, a film cooperative formed in 1983 by black, feminist, and gay filmmakers, The Passion of Remembrance is a work about racism, sexism, homosexuality, and the genera­ tion gap, and their effects on a black British family. The film has two story lines: one features a black man and woman in a desert landscape, discussing the plight of blacks in the U.K. He is aggressive, she shows restraint. The second shows life for the Baptiste family through its personal histories from the 50s to the 80s. Issues of race and sexuality arise, fragments of identities surface and suggest the diversity of a black family's experience in Britain. Writer/directors Maureen Blackwood and Issac Julian also use footage from the inner-city riots that swept Britain in 1981 and shots of gay demonstrations to portray the government's harsh attitude toward its minorities.Although its scope exceeds its technical expertise, The Passion of Remem­ brance reflects a new generation of filmmakers' response to social issues, and has been praised for directing itself mainly to Britain's black community rather than preaching at whites.

METEOR AND SHADOW

TRAS EL CRISTAL

Greece,

Spain,

1985 West Coast Premiere

In Meteor and Shadow Greek director/writer Takis Spetsiotis has avoided the cliches of the typical film biography. Instead he has fashioned a fascinating por­ trait of the poet Napoleon Lapathiotis (1888-1944) that both celebrates his life and stylishly depicts his tragic fall and eventual suicide. A romantic, charming leftist homosexual, Lapathiotis created a scandal in Athens when he refused to follow the rules of conservative Greek society. Turn of the century Athens is conveyed rather than reconstructed in a bold departure from tradi­ tional period films and Spetsiotis makes great use of the junkies, gays and avant garde singers that sur­ rounded Lapathiotis during his life as a poet. An unusual, striking film that won awards for best actor, set design, costume design, and make-up at the pres­ tigious Thessaloniki Film Festival in 1985. Takis Spetsiotis was born in 1954, studied film and English in Athens and London before beginning his filmmaking career with the short films Lisa and the Other and Beauty. In 1982 he created a half hour television film called Napo/eon Lapathiotis that served as the inspira­ tion for the feature length Meteor and Shadow.

Klaus, a doctor who has been instructed to carry out experiments on deported children towards the end of the Second World War, feels compelled to leave the country with his wife and daughter. But subconsciously he harbors the latent desire to perform the atrocious, murderous experiments, an impulse against which he wages a desperate war in his remote refuge near the cliffs. A few years later he has an accident which results in his being confined to an iron lung so that he can still breathe. One day a young man, Angelo, turns up to visit Klaus. It becomes clear that he knows about Klaus' inclinations, knowledge which enables him to needle and blackmail him. Gradually Angelo assumes Klaus' personality, and a curious friendship evolves. And there develops an even stranger relationship be­ tween Angelo and his victim's daughter, Rena. This unusual constellation reaches a point where the three involved are caught up in a battle of life and death. Powerful and deeply disturbing, this is a film which will provoke misunderstanding. Yet it should not. This brilliant debut by Catalan director Agustin Villaronga is an intense exploration of the relationships between power, masculinity and sexuality. The cinematography is faultless, and the acting of David Sust (the nurse), Gunther Meisner (the doctor) and Marisa Paredes (his wife) is superb. Paredes appears in Pedro Almodovar's Sisters of Darkness also screening at the festival.

OLIVIA

France, 1951 The love of a teacher at a French girl's school for one of her students is the subject of Olivia, which Vito Russo describes as "the only film of the 1950s to deal openly with lesbianism." The film's stars are French leading lady Simone Simon and Edwige Feuillere, the noted actress, stage director and member of La Comedie Fran> caise, who received excellent notices for her performance. The script by Colette is remarkable for the unblink­ ing, if sometimes furtive, passion of Miss Julie and Olivia, which, unusual for films or books of the period, grows out of a genuine attraction to each other rather than a failed heterosexual romance or other such disaster. Olivia was directed by Jacqueline Audry, whose film credits include Gigi (1949) and Mitzou (1956). Audry, known for "sensitive observations of the sentiments of women," lives up to her reputation in Olivia. Although the film ends with the tragedy and condemnation of deviancy requisite of 1950s films about homosexual­ ity, throughout most of the film Audry succeeds in creating a generally credible (and oftentimes steamy) relationship between the protagonists. Olivia was released in the U.S. in 1954 under the more provocative title, The Pit of Loneliness.

Cornered and alone, she confronts her personal truth: she is a man trapped in a wo man's body.

He didn't want to handle Vera's dile mma fro m a simple homo­ or transexual angle; the contemporary sym bolism of being literal ly at odds with one's life interested him more.

BRIGHT EYES Great Britain, 1986 In this th ree-part tape made fo r Channel 4 , B ritain's showcase for innovative and experimental work, video­ g rapher Stuart Marshall thoughtfully exami ne s the historical and social factors i nfluencing current reac­ tions to AIDS and homosexuality. The fi rst part of this impressive tape compares 19th century British attitud es toward di sease to present ones. Marshall focuses on a particularly sen sational tabloid story about a per­ son with AIDS in order to demonstrate how inbred bias against homosexuality in media coverage of AIDS ruth lessly obscures the medical aspects of the crisis. The tape argues against the misrepresentation of AIDS as a " gay disease," i m plicitly suggesti ng that AID S be seen as a disease that affects human beings, some of whom are gay. The second part of Bright Eyes is a stylized com­ parison of the treatment of gays by the Nazis and others to police/gove rn mental actions agai n st homosexuals today. The poetic rhythms of the language of persecu­ tion underscore the pervasiven ess of homopho bia in conte mporary society. Political activist and person with AIDS Michael Callen concludes the third part of Bright Eyes by recreating a d ramatic speech he made in front of New Yo rk legis­ lators. Callen vigorously asserts the need fo r more funding fo r research and care fo r those with AI DS. Director: Stuart Marshall Tape source : Stuart Marshal l , 31 Carthew Rd . , London W6 ODU, England

NOVEMBERMOON

West Germany, France, 1984 Novembermoon deals with the German occupation of France and French collaboration with the German army via a love story between a German Jew, November Messing, and her French lover, Ferial. This is the first German feature film to tackle this era in Franco-German history and the persecution of French and German Jews. The film works as history, romance, and ar t : it is a moving, well-crafted look at love under political pressure. The lovers, played by Gabriele Osburg (of Depart to Arrive) as November, and Christiane Millet as Feria l , are beautiful , intense women whose bond is immediate and enduring. November is arrested in the so-called ' 'free zone " of occupied France in 1940 and suffers abuse and humiliation at Gestapo hands. Somehow she makes her way back to Ferial , in Paris, where she is forced to live in hiding while Ferial goes to work for a collaborationist newspaper to avoid sus­ picion . The women and their love sur vive, although Ferial must endure the abuse of her compatriots follow­ ing the liberation of Paris. Novembermoon is a grip­ ping drama and a real love story, and a hard look at an ignoble chapter of German history.

LAW OF DESIRE Spain, 1987 San Francisco Premiere The h it of this year's Berl i n Film Festival , Law of Desire has been creating a sti r all ove r the worl d . Critics have been shocked by its sexual explicitness in this age of safe-sex but have also been overwhelmed by d i rector Pedro Almodovar's wi l d sense of h u mo r and equally wild sense of the outrag eous. When both Vito Russo and Pauline Kael rave about a fi l m you can be sure of so meth ing special . The story is part fantasty, part m u rd e r myster and part erotic comedy. It's about Antonio, who loves Pablo, who loves Juan. It's also about Pablo's sister Tina (played by Carmen Maura who nearly steals the film) who was his brother before under­ going a sex change. The fou r characters become in­ volved i n a tale of sexual intrigue and danger that leads to m u rd e r and amnesia. Pedro Almodovar has been called the Spanish John Waters and directed last year's hit What Have I Done to Deserve This? which featured Carmen Maura as the slum mother. She has been com­ pared to both Anna M agnani and Bette Midler and seems d estined fo r i nternational stard o m .

THE CALL TO ACTION

LESBIAN TV PARTY

Gay men and lesbians on the political front.

Pil iows/PJs OK! TV Party begins with hilarious 17 Rooms, whose subtitle, " What Do Lesbians Do in Bed?" got it banished from Britain's usually open­ minded Channel 4. A dozen or so women bare their breasts and talk about them in the wonderful Off Our Chests. The Minders is a lush fantasy about a celestial utopia ruled by women. Sick features nutty rumina­ tions on the origins of illness and sexual orientation. Frankly, Shirley portrays the less than successful re­ union of two ex-lovers. Episode One of the lesbian soap opera Two in Twenty introduces the melodramatic ad ventures of a typical group of lesbians in a typical American town . . . .

ACROSS THE RUBICON South Africa, 1987 Pieter-Dirk U ys is a South African female imper­ sonator/caricaturist whose finely-wrought satirical tour­ ing show elucidates apartheid while lampooning it. Uys walks a thin line between censorship and arrest as he occasionally steps out of characters that incl ude pw. Botha, Desmond Tutu and Margaret Thatcher to deliver pointed attacks on apartheid and the South African government. Uys' popularity with both white and black audiences insulates him somewhat from government interference, but he describes his balancing act as being " like doing the tango in front of a firing squad." Across the Rubicon brilliantly portrays the humor and grace with which U ys makes his contrib ution to the fight agai nst apartheid.

The South Wales miners' strike of 1 984/85 saw the formation of a curious alliance between a plucky group of young homosexuals from London and miners in Dulais Valley. In DanCing in Dulais, an initial wariness on the part of the young gays, the miners and the miners' families gives way, through sometimes delicate interactions, to a loving and purposeful solid arity.

GERTRUDE STEIN AND A COMPANION

US.A., 1986 Gertrude and Alice get fine treatment in this literate and stylish por trayal of their lives. The script, adapted by Win Wells from Stein's and Toklas' writings, is top­ notch, as are p erformances by Jan Miner as Gertrude and Broadway standout Marian Seldes as Alice. It is the afternoon of July 27, 1946 and Gertrude Stein is dead. Now "alone" in their famous salon, a place usually alive with gatherings of the avant garde from the literary and art worlds, Alice sets out to write to P icasso with the news of Gertrude's death. In her at­ t empt to tell how it happened, sh e begins to relive th e events of their lives together. In a style not unlike Stein's free verse, scenes from their public and private life are interwoven with Alice's r ecollections. Director Ira Cirker successfully marries theatrical and v ideo t echniques to render this com­ pelling portrait of Gertrude's and Al ice's tempestuous forty year r elationship. An interesting counterpoint to the recently released " Waiting for the Moon," this tape offers a fresh look at two of literature's most interesting figures.

HAIL THE NEW PURITAN

Great Britain. 1986 Michael Clark, the sexy, internationafly acclaimed twenty-three-year-old " rock star " of the British dance world, is the subj ect of Hail the New Puritan, produced by Charles Atlas for Channel 4 in Great Britain. Atlas employs a fictional/docum entary style to pre­ sent a wild chronicle of a day in Clark's life. Clever shooting and editing accentuate the superb dancing of Clark's company and the unabashed sexuality that infuses the punk star's work. Hail the New Puritan begins with a skillfully executed dream sequence and follows Clark from waking through returning home at dawn the following morning. Dur­ ing this very active day Clark charms his way through an interview with a dance critic, works out with his com­ pany, performs in a surreal skit with members of the post-punk band Th e Fall, travels to a cemetery to par­ ticipate in the filming of an underground featurette, has an erotic encounter in a mi rrored b edroom, leads the action at a nightclub and finally heads home, where he dances to exhaustion to Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight." At the heart of Hail the New Puritan are ten principal dance sequences which Atlas weaves into a colorful time capsule of th e punk scene of 1980s London.

CRIMES AGAINST NATURE

US. A. , 1977 In 1977, the Gay Men's Theatre Collective of San Fran­ cisco commissioned a video tape of their landmark play, Crimes Against Nature, in hopes of gaining fund­ ing for a film that never panned out. A three camera, forty hour shot produced this vibrant translation of the testaments and self-discovery of a group of gay m en. Described in the '70s a " Chorus Line for gay people, " Crimes Against Nature remains vital today as a com­ munal disclosure of roles gay people adopt in order to survive in a world that devalues homosexual feelings. The play features individual actors delivering reveal­ ing monologues, during which the other members of the collective play background roles (parents, school mates, etc.}. One by one the actors detail the ways in which they have buried their true selves in order to sur­ vive and be accepted in the world : repression ; drug use ; shyness ; being agreeable ; putting experiences into "little boxes " ; acting "butch" and so on. An inspiring courage informs th e som etimes humorous, sometimes painful t estimony of the m en, each of whom occupies the unsettling region between intell ectual and emotional transformation. Exceptional performances convey the suspense involved in treading such dangerous psychological ground. Clever staging raised the original theatrical produc­ tion above m ere confession and director Edward Dundas imaginatively weaves his cameras into the play's action to create an intimacy which the viewer fully shares. Dundas' video tape recreates the emo­ tion, humor, ritual and pathos that characterized th e play. The world premiere of Crimes Against Nature is one of the "must see" programs of this year's festival. As a record of a popular and important play produced in a bygone era, this tape has obvious historical value. Its message about the u rgency of authenticity speaks directly to the present.
