Boston-Berlin, video letters

1986, 58 MINS

Boston-Berlin, video letters | A three-way collaborative visual-diary conversation, with the filmmaker and her then boyfriend, Bob,in Beantown, and their friend, Frank, in Berlin. Frank frets about his dead-end job in television, and takes his camera out in the snow to the dungeon-like, still-extant Berlin Wall. Bob and Cindy decorate a new apartment while Oliver North waxes patriotic on TV. Dreary politics everywhere. This informal, cross-the-Atlantic film conversation shifts themes, tone, and subject matter at random, from gloomy, paranoid thoughts about the Holocaust to silly fun with the singing Evans Sisters, coiffured like blonde poodles, on a side trek to Nashville.
