16mm Film Screening: Rappaport's 'The Scenic Route'
Seward Park Library
192 East Broadway New York, NY10002
An incestuous triangle formed by two sisters and the man caught between them is the basis for an exploration of romantic myths in the context of a contemporary urban environment. The film juxtaposes the fantasy lives of the characters with the banality of everyday existence. The script is characterized by the self-conscious dialect of the urban pseudo-sophisticate. A range of embarassingly familiar sentiments are translated to the screen.
