Make-Out (Newsreel #49)

As a young couple make out in a car, we hear the woman's stream of consciousness thoughts. She worries about her reputation and whether he'll try to "go all the way." This film is best used with discussions and/or materials about date rape.

A short created by Geri Ashur, Andrea Eagan, Marcia Salo Rizzi and Deborah Shaffer, and co-directed by Ashur and Peter Schlaifer, the film is a vibrant document of the early second wave women's movement, and the concerns and thinking of young women at that time. This film is unique in the Newsreel collection, as it was filmed with actors, with a voice-over script created from a women's group discussion.

Third World Newsreel's historical Newsreel collection provides contemporary audiences with a vast archive of political films chronicling the social movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Thanks to the generous contributions of New York Women in Film and Television, original members of the Newsreel collective, and Richard Brick, MAKE OUT has been newly preserved and is now available for purchase and rental.

"The conception and realization of MAKE-OUT is economical and provocative. The voice-over commentary works in effective counterpoint to the visuals, and undermines the realistically portrayed encounter that we might otherwise think normal... MAKE-OUT can be highly effective within a screening context where the girl's thoughts in the film can be completed and studied…"
