Love Tapes: Series 18

1981, 58:50 min, b&w, sound

Love Tapes: Series 18 includes excerpts from the extensive Love Tapes series. Representing a cross-section of contemporary American culture — from prison inmates and disabled veterans to lovesick adolescents — the participants' anecdotes and confessionals reveal an eclectic range of personalities and psychologies. Love Tapes are personal, cathartic statements that illustrate the video camera's role as mirror, witness and voyeur — a vehicle for direct confrontation with the self.
