Grayson Perry: Double Bill: Why Men Wear Frocks / Spare Time (DVD)
Starring: Grayson Perry
WHY MEN WEAR FROCKS
In his documentary for Channel 4, Grayson explores his compulsion to dress as a woman, talking candidly about his own experiences and how he reconciles this aspect of his character with his roles as artist, husband and father. Ultimately Why Men Wear Frocks uncovers the difficulties of being a man in the 21st Century.
Grayson fronts his second documentary exploring the contemporary landscape of leisure. Casting an eye over the many activities that fall under the term spare time, he investigates why our free time is being spent on increasingly passive, solitary and expensive pursuits.
Comparing modern British hobbies with those recommended in a pre-war film by Humphrey Jennings entitled Spare Time begged the question: are we really getting the most out of our precious free time today?
