DescriptionAn examination of a breakdown of one's own language. It is a record of a personal struggle in trying to construct meaning as an outsider in a foreign culture. However, it could also be seen as an effort to understand the nature of paradoxical expectations a female filmmaker is likely to encounter. How can she create an authentic representation of a woman from a female point of view in a world where images and language, as well as technology, are products of a patriarch society. What will be left when these layers of representation are peeled off?
