The late Owen Land’s final long form work Dialogues, or A Waist Is A Terrible Thing To Mind (2007–09) is an episodic tale of love and hate. Screening in the UK for the first time, it will be supplemented by several of his shorter works. Dialogues “concentrates on the events of Owen Land’s life in 1985, when he returned to Los Angeles after spending a year in Tokyo, Fukuoka, and Okinawa, Japan. […] It was a time for much soulsearching about his relationships with women (and with strippers). There are flashbacks to that very formative period, the 1960s when ‘we won the sexual revolution’ as one character says. Some of the episodes contain events which are more speculative, or imaginative, than literally real.”
