Exchanges investigates mechanisms by which meaning is produced in film, through the interaction of the process of construction of a text and the social context which determines and is represented by that text. The film deconstructs the relationship between the image and work, visual codes and language, memory and experience. Exchanges also raises the question of female sexuality in attempting to represent women as sexual beings outside the positions assigned to them by male power and fantasy. (Bette Gordon)
