Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Beth B, 1995, U.S.

As an intense study of the physical, psychological and social breakdown of the human condition, the documentary questions a system that has lost its aspiration to reform while adding the television docudrama style of the late-20th century that drives our knowledge of accepted views of truth and morality. The video mixes historical newsreel footage of bizarre daredevils intercut with contemporary images of violence and television news footage about the real-life story of Eric Smith, a thirteen-year-old boy who killed a four-year-old child. He was tried as an adult and placed in prison instead of being put in a mental institution for treatment.
