Creative Detours, 1992, 10 minutes In this short narrative, a young woman moves to New York City from the Midwest in order to "develop her writing" and to share an apartment with her boyfriend. Distracted from her new creative life-style, she is soon challenged by her best friend to work harder to foster her own growth as an artist.

One of my favorite quotes from an essay is that" while women are seen as sex objects, men are seen as success objects." I guess I am trying to find a film that shows this dynamic. I suggested von Trier, Lynch and Labute (since they always get criticized on these issues). I also suggested Film Noir in general, and of course, Disney films. Other suggestions would be welcome.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
