About

In “Peace O’ Mind” (1983, 8.5 minutes) the characters try to stay safe at home, but become isolated and entrapped there.  Images of a domestic space are connected with images of poverty “in the backyard” of this space to suggest knowing of and hiding from this deprivation has entrapped the characters, physically and mentally, in their private, isolated, and disturbed spaces. 

 

”…is both a pun on Filippo’s desire to give us a piece of her thought, and a plea for peace both global and personal.”

-Katherine Dieckmann
