Out of Sight/Out of Mind1995

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.0
An intense study of the physical, psychological and social breakdown of the human condition, OUT OF SIGHT/OUT OF MIND (as well as the related media installation) 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, reality and delusion. 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.
