Joan does "Dynasty" Trailer

Tape# 105 Hampshire College professor and stand-up theorist Joan Braderman takes on power and desire in TV's campiest series. "Joan Does Dynasty," a classic in feminist media deconstruction, is a hilarious look at the materialistic 80's in the context of the ordinary working person's life. Superimposing herself over portions of "Dynasty" and into the bedrooms, office suites and maids' quarters of the super rich, Braderman asks, "Why do 100 million people in 78 countries welcome this department store of dressed-to-kill aliens into their homes every week?" TRT: 28 minutes.
