"Journal: May 24, 1989
Watching Not a Love Story after so many years, I see that it's really about voice—or lack of it. The dialogue about pornography and erotica has evolved since 1981 and become more complex, but Not a Love Story was part of breaking women's silence, opening our eyes and our mouths. Seeing it now in Israel, I realize the coherence of my life's work. It wasn't a series of unrelated films, but variations on a related theme: speech vs. silence, peace vs. violence, solidarity vs. isolation."
