One of Sue Ford’s earliest films, Woman in a house is a feminist critique of domestic female roles. In this short film, a young woman in a suburban house escapes the confinement of her life through surreal dream sequences created with experimental montage techniques. Made in 1972, the film was shown at screenings run by the Melbourne Filmmaker’s Co-op and was one of the most popular films available to rent from the feminist film collective Reel Women, of which Ford was a founding member, in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
