A Cold Draft

Courtisane: Artist in Focus - Sandra Lahire 30' - 1988 - Dialogue: English - Format: 16mm
Director: Lis Rhodes
What is most provocative about this film is that it proposes multiple credible points of view even as the woman is being certified insane by the ‘Censors’. We voyage into the skull of a woman and peer out to a monumentally static cold waste wit planetary slow motion. It is a bunker-eye view. (Sandra Lahire)

A Cold Draft is drawn from (a drawing of) the conditions produced by ‘liberal’ economics in the UK in the 1980’s. Truth is reckless, certainty a sham, but such is faith in repetition that line by line certainty is drawn. The account may be fictitious, a representation, but the events are the result of the imposition of private ownership. (Lis Rhodes)
