Nothing A Little Soap and Water Can’t Fix / Jennifer Proctor / US / 2017 / 9 min
In films, as in life, the bathtub represents a private space for women – a place not only to groom, but to relax, to think, to be alone, to find sanctuary. For Hollywood, though, it’s also a place of naked vulnerability, where women narratively placed in harm’s way have no escape. Using appropriated movies, this experimental found footage work deconstructs the representations of women in this domestic space as historically framed in popular film.
