A series of films exploring relations of text and found image: how text turns the image, spins it, to acknowledge the alphabet as power, accompaniment and meaning. Originating from Child&́#x80;™s explorations as a published poet and her friendships in the field..."We perceive that a set of concerns builds up, with artful indirectness: women&́#x80;™s power; the gestures of gender; manipulation of a spectator&́#x80;™s sensibility through the medium of film; large-scale political implications of small moments." (Karen Schiff)
