FILM... MEN'S MADNESS: The Myth of Male Reason
Commissioned by Channel 4 and broadcast in 1991
Running Time: 45 mins

The film was made in order to provoke debate and challenge the generally accepted view that technological progress is not only natural and inevitable, but also hugely beneficial.
Made at a time when women, manual workers, and minorities were striving for equality within the agenda set by the notions of 'progress', the film questioned the premise that the values that propel us forward at breakneck speed, should be regarded as those of the highest order.
Set in the London Underground, it takes us on a journey through various worlds such as industrial production, war, genetics, space technology, religion and robotics. The film links these isolated worlds of work in order to understand the pattern of irrationality and obsessiveness responsible for our rapidly declining environment.
