[Politics of Intimacy: Julie’s Mother tape 2]

This is raw footage shot for Julie Gustafson's documentary, "The Politics of Intimacy." In this seminal feminist video, ten women address the camera and seemingly each other in a wide-ranging exploration of such previously taboo subjects as women’s sexuality, power, and fears about intimacy. This interview is with Julie's mother, Margit Gustafson. Originally shot in 1/2" B & W video.

Margit Gustafson is the mother of director Julie Gustafson. She’s in her 50s and smokes while answering questions.
