Sandi DuBowski

Tomboychik by Sandi DuBowski (1994) edits together a series of encounters between the filmmaker and his grandmother, who perhaps knows more about her grandson than he realizes. DuBowski said, "'Tomboychik' was done as a bargain basement piece -- it started out just as an oral history….no lights, just the camera sound….you don't have to have a lot of money and resources to make video." The result is a useful early example of video self-reflection.
