This week's film discussion concerns Roger Corman's slightly camp, but brilliantly expressionist 1956 short feature film "Swamp Women." The story follows three women's prison escape and attempt to find fulfillment in the only place the oppressed can find fulfillment not constrained by oppression . . . deep in the Big Muddy's bayou wilderness! Held as property, beheld as property, Hell as property, these women, sharply individualized, refuse to be anything male presumptuousness can contain.
