The techniques used in Ursula Biemann’s Writing Desire may look a little busy and out of place yet they are all chosen for a specific reason. The way Biemann shows the selection of race, age and physical appearance on screen really shows the way in which people can be selected as commodities. Although Biemann is discussing a challenging topic she does it such a way of keeping the ‘mail order brides’ identity save by instead showing the typical western male more likely to purchase the mail order bride. The way music is used in the film is really provoking and enhances the way in which we feel. The fast pace of the music identifies the fast paced world we live in. The dark undertones of the techno beat really enhances the subject matter of using humanity as a commodity.
