THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF DELPHINE IN THE LAND OF FEMINISM

synopsis

A table. Carole Roussopoulos on one side, Delphine Seyrig on the other. In between them, a televison. Delphine is reading extracts from the "S.C.U.M. Manifesto" (Society for Cutting Up Men) by Valerie Solanas’ eponymous manifesto from 1967 - then out of print in French -, while Carole is typing the text with a very noisy typewriter. The first sentence, stating that "the male is a biological accident, an incomplete female, a walking abortion, to be male is to be deficient," is read by Delphine Seyrig, as well as the whole selection of the text. From time to time, they stop and turn up the volume of the television to watch news of male-dominated world violent events. The seriousness of Delphine reading such a radical statement, together with these "TV pauses," creates a filmic caricature (a hilarious one) giving us the opportunity, as with the film ”Maso and Miso go boating,” to see and reflect on what was then considered as "normal"… and is unfortunately still so current.
