it never happened...

Darlene Naponse

1997, 04:20 minutes, B&W, English


This short experimental video is about the irresponsibility and loss of control of a young First Nations girl. She begins her night out partying and just trying to have a good time. Totally drunk, she loses control, blacks out and is taken advantage of sexually. It is a look at the repercussions of her reality blurred and violated. Based on a true story, the character has to face her reality and disrespect for herself. This independent video was financed and supported by family and friends.
