Fit To Be Tied

Directed by Sara Diamond
Canada, 1995 (video art, 24 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"This program explores rural and urban life in the home during the depression of the 1930s from the perspectives of housewives and domestic workers. Traces of past social movements, beliefs and memories have disappeared in the changing architecture of daily life, and in the changing values of the present. The video uses spaces, dramatic suggestions, layered sound, audio and video interviews, radio clips and a rich range of historical footage to evoke feelings of constraint and movement. Fit To Be Tied underlines the ways that women survived great hardship, finding ways to heal themselves and their communities through social activism, faith and community. Co-produced with the Women's Television Network and the Canadian Independent Film and Video Fund."
