Réalisé par Lisa Steele
Canada, 1974 (art vidéo, 14 minutes, noir et blanc, anglais)

Description du film [en anglais] :

Citation sur Birthday Suit: With Scars and Defects [en anglais]

« In honour of her birthday, [Lisa] Steele presents her naked body to the unblinking gaze of the camera. While the tape can be located within what Rosalind Krause has called 'the aesthetics of narcissism' that characterized the first decade of artist's video, it also provides an important counter-image to the emergent critique of the female body in narrative cinema. »
