Bath

(Penelope Spheeris, 1969, 5.5 min)

Made in an environment and at a time when frequent and gratuitous images of nude women permeated the work of her male counterparts, Spheeris produced this intimate and sensual observation of a woman bathing.  The appearance of Spheeris’s credit at the beginning of the film seems to ask the question: how does voyeurism change when we know the voyeur is actually a voyeuse?
