Applying and Removing

Directed by Martha Davis
Canada, 1979 (avant-garde, 18 minutes, colour)

Film Description:
"Applying: a nude woman is painted completely black. Attention concentrated on the process of going from white to black. Removing: she washes herself off in the bathtub, and goes from black to grey to white. Seemingly austere, the film is resonant on many levels, and each viewer brings to it his/her own associations."
