Know Your Turtle

Directed by Lisa Steele
Canada, 1972 (video art, 23 minutes, black and white, English)

Film Description:
"A performance by [Lisa] Steele and her pet turtles features live audio mixing and a female reader. The minimal action takes place in 3 rooms of an apartment. The reader shares the intricacies of raising turtles in a domestic environment while Steele enacts an integration of a new animal into its new home through a ritual cleansing. This weave of chance and action is both playful and banal."
