DreamWorlds 3: Desire, Sex & Power in Music Video takes a clarifying look at the
warped world of music video. Ranging across hundreds of images and stories from
scores of music videos, Jhally uncovers a dangerous industry preoccupation with

glamorized a deeply sexist worldview in the face of the women’s movement and the

inconsequential can be implicated in serious real-world problems like gender
violence, misogyny, homophobia, and racism. Please click on the link below to watch
