  • Holy Joe

  • Artist: Joe Sarahan
  • Year: 1987
  • Duration: 10:37
  • Country: Canada
  • A searing vision of mass culture in a contemporary society. Holy Joe is a fast paced collage that dislocates our pre-described fetishistic response to religion, ritual and vice. This tape also challenges the seduction of consumerism and the media's manipulation of the politics of sexual preference and class i.d. Carefully deconstructed to tackle each issue in a different way through dramatized scenes, interviews, staged poses; Sarahan's production never takes the easy way out.
