Sally's Beauty Spot
A film by Helen Lee
Canada/US, 1990, 12 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99183
A large black mole above an Asian woman's breast serves as a metaphor for cultural and racial difference in this engaging experimental film. Offscreen women's voices and scenes from THE WORLD OF SUZIE WONG parallel and counterpoint Sally's own interracial relationships and emerging self-awareness. A provocative and stylish meditation on Asian femininity.

"Sally's Beauty Spot" is available as part of the series Helen Lee Compilation. All three films in the series are available for the special price of $395.

    "Challenges fetishistic and colonialist forms of representation, wittily tracing a character's move from stereotypical object to sexual subject."
