Summary

Documentary and fictional elements are combined in LOSS PREVENTION to tell the story of Irene, arrested at the age of seventy-nine for stealing a bottle of aspirin from a Miami Walmart and sentenced to ten weeks of Senior Citizen Shoplifting Prevention School. Narrated through the voice of her daughter, this film explores the alienation of aging and the evolving relationship between a daughter and an elderly mother. The visual material combines the lush Florida landscape with intimate Super-8 footage to create a subtle meditation on the conflicts of parent and child, boredom and pleasure, accident and intention, authority and subterfuge.
