Director: Vanalyne Green
A female baseball fan examines her obsession with the game, along psycho-sexual lines. Vanalyne Green appropriates the all-male arena of pro baseball to create an hilarious visual essay about family, loss and sexuality.
Confronted with such a wonderland, devoid of all women, Green is compelled to reinterpret baseball's symbolism - its womblike landscape, rituals and vocabulary, to construct an iconography that pays homage to the female. With humour and irony, Green creates a tape that is both a personal revelation and a heretical portrait of America's national past time as the ultimate male return-to-the-womb fantasy.
