From the Archives: BEFORE NEED
(Gunvor Nelson & Dorothy Wiley, 16mm, 75min., 1979)
“Because it had been so many years since we had worked together on a film, we were wondering if it was still possible to collaborate. We started with some dream images, a few actors, friends, and relatives. Slowly the film evolved into sequences or images that expressed the emotional discoveries of an aging woman. The snow had melted and it was impossible to repeat. Standards of Perfection applied to all the selves, the relationships, the layers of memory. Where are the tables for one?” – Dorothy Wiley & Gunvor Nelson
