Scope and content

"A surreal social commentary on contemporary lifestyles. Winner of the 1979 B.C. film festival." [Program for 1978/79 SFU Student Workshop Films showing, 15 June 1979]. Also held by "Moving Images Distribution in 16mm format: "Two for Tea evolves in a text/counter-textual structure that relates tothe narrative/anti-narrative debate of avant-garde film practice, and the issues raised regarding the positioning of the subject in an open or closed text ... The film begins with what appears to be a narrative on the banality of suburban life. Two women share mid-afternoon tea, a common practice in this South Vancouver suburb. This mannered feminine ritual also reveals the women'sexperience as a kind of a trophy ... They politely sip their tea, oblivious to the violence in the world around them or to the specific violation of those of their own gender. By framing the woman's "place" as private rather than public,the film explores this feminine social determination. A TV is used as a formal device to deconstruct the narrative's logical, linear coherence and closure.The surreal aspects of the later sequences invite the spectator to take an active part in the production of meaning. (M.I.)" 1979, 12 min. [http://www.movingimages.ca/catalogue/Experimental/Experimental_i.html#RTFToC31b]
