Description

Dreamworlds 3, the highly anticipated update of Sut Jhally’s groundbreaking
Dreamworlds 2 (1995), examines the stories contemporary music videos tell about girls
and women, and encourages viewers to consider how these narratives shape individual
and cultural attitudes about sexuality. With new narration and hundreds of up-to-date
images, Dreamworlds 3 offers a unique and powerful tool for understanding both the
continuing influence of music videos, as well as how pop culture more generally filters
the identities of young men and women through a dangerously narrow set of myths about
sexuality and gender. In doing so, it inspires viewers to reflect critically on images that
they might otherwise take for granted.
