This brief, silent collage film presents images of seduction, rape, and implied violence. A sequence of very brief shots are linked by the theme of a grid which obscures an image: a wire screen with a fly on it, black lace over a woman’s body, a woman wearing a veil. Sometimes this screen seductively hides a woman, at other times it seems to hide the violent intentions of a man. I found that while the shots could easily be related to each other conceptually, the film had a lack of attention to the actual visual textures and colors which comprised the disparate footage, and a similarly flat feeling for the editing rhythm, which prevented the film from affecting me on a deep level.
