Description'This film creates a visual dialogue between the seen, recognised and unrecognised. A woman searches through an interior landscape, a space where she is both trapped and contained. Her dress, a projected image of femaleness becomes her vehicle of expression. Through rhythmic intercutting the film moves silently toward the point of confrontation; the woman opens the door to the outside world. This moment of violent interaction is shockingly emphasised though the film's only sound'. T.S
