This film is from the point of view of a cameraman following a young woman through the streets of a city. He chases her down an alley and knocks her over, in a symbolic form of video assault. No dialogue.
John and Yoko Ono Lennon's Erection is not what you think...unless you're aware of the other meaning
Well, this was another interesting, if not completely entertaining, short by Yoko Ono I watched on the UbuWeb. This time her husband, John Lennon, collaborated with her. It's just a bunch of stills taken by a stationary camera over eighteen months by Iain MacMillian of the construction of the International Hotel in London during 1970 and 1971. There's both daytime and nighttime shots and of the lights going up inside. Yoko wails (no way what she does is "singing") two of her songs: "Airmale" and "You" to the toy percussion instruments of the Joe Jones Tone Deaf Music Co. (Have you not heard of a more appropriate name?) Anyway, those squeaky (and other annoying) sounds were indeed provided by Jones who-no surprise here-was a former associate of Ono. Anyway, like I said, it was very interesting if not completely entertaining, but it's worth a look on the site I mentioned if you're so inclined. P.S. The hotel is on 147 Cromwell Road and is now called the London Swallow Hotel.
