”Letters To Dad"
By Beth B & Scott B. (13’15 seconds)
“….the almost lyrical Letters to Dad, is a 15 minute meditation on authority that superimposes the spectre of Jonestown over the relatively fresh faces of the parapunk art world…the film takes on a musical form- like a 20th-century ballad composed of subliminal behavior cues, advertising testimonials, and the text of the National Enquirer.”
J.Hoberman, Village Voice 1979.
