Curator: Theatre Vanguard

Description:
A powerful dramatic feature film by Los Angeles filmmaker Bobby Roth that chronicles the struggles of a man and woman to maintain an intimate relationship while being beaten down by the impersonal environment in which they live and work. He is trapped in the blue collar whirlpool while she begins to expand her freedom and discover her identity- racial, sexual, and economic tensions inhibiting each step of their mutual and independent growth. Roth is currently working on another feature film tentatively titled 'The Boss's Son' [Source: FILMVID Program Notes, 1977]
