Dream Age (1979)
1979, 10:58 min, color, sound, 16 mm film on HD video
""A 70-year-old lesbian feminist, seeing little change in the society after years of work, sends out her 40-year-old self on a journey taking her around the perimeters of the San Francisco Bay. During her quest she encounters aspects of her personality: the guardian angel who has all that she needs; the seductress who leads her astray; the wise woman of secrets who she meets underground. The film culminates in a visual crescendo ascending a tower as the heroine's hair is painted white by her counterparts. A dream vision film." — Barbara Hammer -- EAI
