Kept Quiet

Julia Meltzer

1995, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


Latina youth video makers, Rachel Ballestreros, Maribel Bañuelos, Adalia Campos, Gladys Farias, Mireya Lopez, Perla Parra and Maria Isabel Sanchez working in collaboration with media artist Julia Meltzer, tell a story of sexual abuse which happened to two anonymous teenage girls - one of a haunting childhood memory and the other of date rape. Images of everyday life are paired with a confessional voice over of the private burden that these girls carry with them. This video was made at Manual Arts High School where Julia Meltzer was a media artist in residence during the spring semester of 1995.
