Searching for Angela
The road functions in this film as Angela's path to her self-discovery. She meets women around the country who share her name, but represent women as a whole. The strength that these women display by speaking about their abuse give Angela inspiration to confront her father. This strength emerged from Angela's experience on the road, talking to other Angelas. I think the camera power is used well in this film. The women are represented in their unique environments and they seem very down-to-earth and real. I can't imagine having shared an experience as awful as some of these women have in their lives, so I can't say that I would have made this film differently. I think Angela met her goal in finding herself through finding out about women in general.
