bitches brew (13 min. 2006)

Sampled from mostly male directed movies from the 60ies to today, the video shows women who take back control and power, fight off their attackers or take revenge on their assailants. A man’s nightmare!
The piece addresses female empowerment and women’s use of violence (modeled after male heros) and raises questions about stereotypes of female heroines in film – from rape victim taking revenge, sex bomb, superwoman to bad-ass warrior.
