REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., June 20, 2001

The setting is the future: New York City, 10 years after the Social Democratic War of Liberation. With sexual oppression the norm, women in this post-revolutionary world still face the same old problems of how to create a social structure that is responsive to their needs and goals. Beautifully made, courageously edited, and swift-moving, this challenging, provocative film is a work that is both humanist and revolutionary. Director Lizzie Borden will be in attendance.
