Incontinence: a diarrhetic flow of obvious mismatches

United States, 1978

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Experimental film dealing with film editing and the visual image. Contains seven individual sequences of mismatching dialogue/actors/scenes with all scenes based on actual dialogue from “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?”. However, a comic nightmare takes place and a healthy disregard for the text creates quite a bizarre interpretation of this well-known piece of literature. Cast includes Dina Paisner, Ken Burns, Patrick Gerstle, Susan Schneider and others.
