Synopsis

A film that examines the process of interrogation. The cop show aesthetic is used but all actions were removes, Donna (the main character) works in a laboratory as a technician. One night when she's working late, an armed man enters and holds her hostage. Before morning, the police have intervened, the man is dead, and Donna herself is under suspicion. These events all occur before the tape opens. The subject of this tape is based on the artist's observations of how legal and law enforcement agencies interact with women. This is not so much a story of corruption within the police force as it is an examination of how order and authority reproduce themselves, developing an account of reality, one that differs greatly from the lives of the powerless people that these "official conclusions" supposedly describe.(Lisa Steele on Vimeo)
