Ladies Room

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products

Abstract

​The director spends three months filming in the toilet of a crowded Oxford pub, trying to find out whether women are tyrannies or victims when it comes to men. The film reveals its true mood by personally engaging with the women interviewed, some of which show degrees of disenchantment, bitterness and irony. ​

​Through the symbolic presence of the mirror, women’s personal voices play an active part in the narrative, while men represent the absent subject under scrutiny.
