Rape - Yoko Ono/John Lennon (1969)

John Lennon was a better songwriter than he was visual artist or filmmaker. But here is his film Rape, made with Yoko as The Beatles project was in its final year. This film is from the point of view of a cameraman following a young woman through the streets of a city. He chases her down an alley and knocks her over, in a symbolic form of video assault. No dialogue.
