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.
