'The Greyhound, the Pigeon and the Protestant Orange Order - intrinsic male dominated elements of Scotland's working class culture. Tool places a female within these contexts in order to highlight sexual stereotypes. Juxtaposing and restaging events and images, from a re-creation of the assault on Rodney King by Los Angeles police to an intimate pensive moment when a bridal couple wait for a first wedding photograph, presenting images - surreal and real - as a catalyst for maximum expression' - Shaz Kerr. This video was winner of the 1994 Norwich Festival of Women's Film Cinewomen award.
