I DID IT!
I changed the tape. Pressed stop and yanked out that crap, predictable film. I was bloody tired of watching her go upstairs so to speak. My brain said ENOUGH.
Unfortunately, this is the only tape I have. So now I’m sort of looking at a blank screen which is a bit unnerving. Some might see this as an opportunity to make my own shiny new film, and they would be correct. The problem is where to begin? I’m going to need some time to think about it.
Off I go to write about the Comisión para el Esclarecimiento Histórico (Guatemalan truth commission).
*a note: for those of you who are thinking to yourselves “VHS?” I say that’s right, VHS. This is a 25 year old film and DVD didn’t exist.
