Bird in the Hand

Catherine Gund (Saalfield) & Melanie Hope
1992 25 min. USA
Educational DVD Price $100.00


Simone and Kaya are lovers trying desperately to escape New York City for the weekend and the reality of their friend Ayo's abusive relationship. Along the way, Kaya, who is Ayo's ex-lover, becomes more and more obsessed with tracking her down before they leave. In this experimental narrative, the couple confronts exemplary urban obstacles of broken pay phones, jealousy and other unexpected encounters. At times humorous, at times discomforting, Bird in the Hand addresses issues around co-dependency and obsession through passionate, honest characterizations of lesbian culture.
