A DREAM OF NAMING


B&W 16MM, 1991
produced and directed by Penelope Buitenhuis

SYNOPSIS
An expressionistic, visual interpretation of the poem "a dream of naming" by Vancouver poet/performance artist Judy Radul. A woman reflects on the plurality of her self-image. The act of defining her own identity elicits a collage of images from myth and memory. Colliding visions of a woman as Venus, the child, the grotesque, the lover, the rebel, the victim, and the poet defy us to examine our own contradictions.


"An extraordinarily beautiful,
endlessly confrontational film"

-Toronto festival of festivals
