Partial Eclipse

2002, 10:00 minutes, colour, English


On November 1999, Matty Baranovsky was brutally killed in Toronto in a random act of violence. The murder was widely covered by the media. The conservative style of the initial coverage was unable to grasp the depth of the emotional trauma. Partial Eclipse is an attempt to personalize the emotional experience of this tragedy.
