DescriptionLIGHT READING begins in darkness as a woman's voice is heard over a blank screen. She speaks of her search for a voice: of presence and absence, of experience and history. Her voice continues until the images appear on the screen and then it is silent. In the final section of the film she begins again - reading the images as these are moved and re-placed, describing the piecing together of the film as she tries to piece together the strands of her story. 'She watched herself being looked at She looked at herself being watched but she could not perceive herself as the subject of the sentence ...' (Lis Rhodes).
