“Sit Down and Shut Up”
December 2, 2010
Just had to share this award-winning short film (15 minutes or so) from 1981, Quilts in Women’s Lives.
This is a short trailer:
Here’s the whole film, which is worth the 15 minutes if you like to think about why we make stuff by hand.
(Ann and I both had those big round glasses back then, so be kind, young’uns!)
I found this film via our excellent friends over at The Sister Project, (And by the way, The Sister Project has a fantastic horoscope writer, Sheilaa Hite. While astrology has always struck me as highly improbable, I believe in entertaining writing and good common sense, such as Sheilaa’s advice to me this month: “Don’t try to hold on to what you used to feel, know or believe was safe and predictable.”)
(I’m also thinking of changing the spelling of my name to Kaay. Is that OK with you, Aann?)
