Damned if You Don’t
1984. USA. Directed by Su Friedrich. This film begins with the retelling of Michael Powell’s Black Narcissus (1947) and becomes a melodramatic seduction of one woman by another. 55 min.
Cool Hands, Warm Heart
1979. USA. Directed by Su Friedrich. Friedrich’s first 16mm film (transferred from Super-8 footage) is the beginning of her lifelong exploration of issues and subjects concerning women’s identity.
