  • This tape deals in an unorthodox manner with certain aspects of gender and genetics. An aberrant cat, a bellicose bird, and fetal genital development are some of the subjects discussed. There is a definite but sly attempt at inverting notions of female inferiority. A non-linear sequence of scenes is interwoven to give a sense of plot progression and narrative closure. The scenes have a deliberately controlled stylization with the cast speaking about a common subject in a common tone.
