Villa Capri
12min.
1998

Villa Capri , the first of Vincent Goudreau’s videos, is an exploration yet critical look into a retirement home in Los Angeles, California.  Rooted in psychology and sociology this portrait of an American institution visits the residents and their stories, which have then led them to live at Villa Capri. With existing taboos of aging and death, the work attempts to allow a space or an opportunity for the voices of those who have been culturally set aside.   Capturing the planned weekly activities exposes the forced dependencies and control struggles that develop in such living environments.
