Beaver Valley

1980, 6:45 min, color, sound

Beaver Valley opens with the image of a cleaver striking a baby doll and the deadpan spoken question, "Wouldn't I make a good mother?" Representations of women on television, in commercials and in Hollywood movies are then intercut with footage of a nude woman, contrasting the female body with the meanings that are projected onto it.
