Seven short works about feminine desire. Of one of them Jack Helbig writes: “Only six and a half minutes long, Hope Hall's moving, sometimes baldly manipulative This Is for Betsy Hall speaks volumes about our obsession with body image. Framed as a letter to her anorexic mother, it uses still photographs and home-movie footage to sketch a sad, uneasy, almost skeletal woman who's determined to keep her rail-thin appearance even when eight months pregnant; most of the sound track consists of a tearful phone conversation between mother and daughter.” On the same program, work by Vivian Sorenson, Michelle Lewis, Midi Onodera, Jay Sennet, Alicia Sherson, and Beatriz Anton and Felix Puela. 75 min.
