Background:
Broadcast as a segment of Episode 312 of the 1987 season of "New Television."

Scope:
See the record for "New Television, Episode 312 (1987)" for descriptions of videos containing this work. An 8 X 10 black-and-white photographic print shows an image from the work, shot off the monitor.

In a monotone voice, a man shot in profile tells the story of a relationship from its beginnings, through marriage, and ultimately through its deterioration. In sparse anecdotes and reflections, the picture of a husband struggling with divorce is painstakingly reconstructed. And yet the speaker seems detached and emotionally distant, never facing the camera full-on. At times, he turns his head from left to right. There is no credit information. The piece is approximately eight minutes long.



Subjects:
Interpersonal relations
Marriage
