COMMON MISTAKES uses the four synonyms of the word mistake (fallacy, error, accident and blunder) to present a sample of widely held "truths" that have later proven to be misconceptions. The mistakes are illustrated with documentary before and after photographs, diagrams and video footage and prefaced with a clip from a children's educational film on how to prevent accidents. Inter-cut between each mistake a silhouetted figure gives a brief monologue on the manner in which these broad social errors affected their individual lives. This contrast suggests both compliance and victimization of the individual in relation to issues such as racism, environmental pollution and imperialism.
