It's Hard to be Right: Synopsis
It's Hard To Be Right (Hi-8mm and Betacam video, April 1992, 42 minutes), is a surrealistic
and absurdist treatment of the Left versus Right political polarization in the United States,
replete with medieval knights, dancers in fig leaves, and places where women wait. From the
very beginning, the video interweaves two disparate narratives: two strangers in waiting,
Kellie and Wendy, find friendship despite their divergent lifestyles, while intellectuals Stephen
and Michael plot to blow up a right-wing Senator in an act of political, emotional desperation.
The Senator, however, only appears throughout the video in the form of a video image or an actual
walking television head.
