In Harm's Way
A film by Jan Krawitz
1996, 27 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99499
"For some of us there is an event in our lives after which nothing will ever be the same." IN HARM'S WAY's introductory narration sets the stage for an inquiry into societal "truths" advanced during the 1950s and the subsequent violation of the world view they established. Prompted by her adult experience as a random victim of sexual assault, the filmmaker revisits her childhood's fragile myths to examine a belief system gone awry. Utilizing images from a generation's collective past, this personal memoir questions assumptions instilled in children growing up in the late 1950's. As evocative as it is cautionary, the film thoughtfully juxtaposes formative experiences of the world with the legacy of anonymous violence encountered as an adult woman.
