Cliff & Hazel
USA, 1993, 25 Minute Running Time
Cliff & Hazel is an adopted daughter’s humorous and poignant portrait of her adoptive parents. Ann documents a trip home to celebrate her mother’s 80th birthday. It is her first visit since the death of her father and words come easier in his absence. Hazel is outspoken about her anti-women’s liberation views and her belief that a woman’s place is in the home. She also believes that men are smarter than women and she tells her feminist daughter that the proof can be found in the television program Jeopardy, where there are always more men than women.
