Liza BEAR, Oued Nefifik: A Foreign Movie (1982, 28 min.) A comedy of manners in a post
colonial setting. A tourist's holiday falls apart in the aftermath of bloody riots in Casablanca, Morocco. Bear's deconstructed screen often mixes film, TV news and text.
Since the mid 1970s Liza Bear has created an intriguing body of work that consistently focuses attention on communications issues-specifically the use of media by the press and the disempowered role of the public in communications policy. Central to Bear's work is a desire to tie the means of production (technology) to the reasons for production (capitalistic advantage, national ideology, etc.). While Bear's concerns are global, her approach is always personal and experimental-collapsing the norms of narrative and documentary, subjective authorship and objective document.
