I wrote an article focusing on the film: "Present
Personal Truths: The Alternative Phenomenology of Video in I've Heard the
Mermaids Singing," which was published in  Wide Angle (Vol. 15, #3, July
1993).  My research then cited just about everything that had been written
on the film up to that time, so I hope it would be helpful.  I could mail
you a copy if you can't find it in your library, although it may also be
available online.  Good luck--
