Description: Through my work I attempt to explode the suspension of disbelief common to the experience of cinema and, in so doing, explore the 'reality' created by and in films. With clear reference to Brecht I attempt to show that film 'reality' is a construction and that the reality, that it reflects/distorts, is also a construction that can be changed. I am particularly concerned with the representation of women and the unrealistic and outmoded expectation that women must excel in their professional field whilst also 'keeping a good home' if they do not want their 'womanliness' to be judged.
