Wrong Place, Wrong Time
The Aftermath of a Random Street Killing

10 minutes / color / 16mm

Wrong Place, Wrong Time is the deeply affecting portrait of Stephen Moses, a young art student who was shot dead at a phone booth in a random shooting. The voices of the friends he left behind are heard as we see images of his art work in a posthumous exhibit.  They remind us of the transience of life, and how quickly tragedy is forgotten in a society inured to violence.

Includes photographic portraits by Karen Shertzer.
