Movie Info

This is a very personal documentary about women's liberation by the poet and novelist Sandra Hochman. Against the backdrop of the 1972 Republican and Democratic Presidential conventions, she reminisces about her own life, interviews many notable figures in political life and in the women's liberation movement, and makes satirical jabs at the male establishment. The fact that the media largely ignored the vice-presidential bid of Shirley Chisolm serves as a good illustration of how far the movement has yet to go. The documentary ends with shots of Hochman tap dancing around national monuments in Washington, D.C. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

  • Miss Hochman, who apparently considers herself a force for raising women's consciousnesses, sees hardly anyone except herself in this montage of interviews and dopey fantasy sequences.

  • Hochman may be a poet, but her writing here ("In this secret room of mirrors, are we spying on who we are?") offers heavy evidence to the contrary.
