Canada, 1964 (expérimental, 4 minutes, couleurs)
Autre titre : « Patriotism 1 »

Description du film [en anglais] :

Citations sur Patriotism, Part I [en anglais]

« Patriotism, Part One depicts an army of phallic, bun-clad wieners marching on a vulnerable sleeping white male body, naked save for a sheet. [...] In this light-hearted, and by early twenty-first-century standards hackneyed, allegory of US neo-imperialism, the hot dog is not just a sign of US culture passively consumed by Canadians, but rather a phallic sign of a penetrating US multinational capitalism. »
-- Christopher Gittings (source)

« [Joyce] Wieland once called this her 'hot dog film' and downplayed it as a 'technically bad' experiment in animation. But as an early product of her New York years (1963-71, during which Wieland says she became increasingly politicized as a Canadian nationalist and as a woman faced with the often overt sexism of her male colleagues in the avant-garde), the film gestures toward a view of the male body as a complex, vulnerable site, criss-crossed by power and inscribed with the marks of gendered national identity. »
