Raymond Pettibon: Citizen Tania (1989, 87min, colour, sound)
The saga of heiress Patty Hearst's abduction by the Symbionese Liberation Army — and her subsequent transformation into a gun-toting radical — is told as an absurdist drama of countercultural alienation. The tape's raw, deliberately home-made execution provides an abject theater for the crude sexual and racial politics of the would-be revolutionaries.
