In Harm's Way (1996) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1997 , Documentary)
Director: Jan Krawitz

As a dynamited building collapses in slow motion, professor of film Jan Krawitz declares that ten years ago a moment came in her life when the earth shifted and nothing would ever be the same again. Using archival footage from the America of her childhood and her own images of Texas, she movingly unravels not so much that event as the inculcated ideas which this cataclysm destroyed - the belief that one can control this life, that the world is essentially benign.
