Handtinting -- Film Description:
"A study of poor black and white girls at a Job Corps centre, brought from rural areas to be 'educated' in typing. Here you see displaced creatures ... swimming, sitting and mostly dancing, who express what's happening to themselves through their bodies, their hands, their faces, in my film."
-- Joyce Wieland
