AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The video camera can be a tool of expression, exploration and communication. But it can also be an instrument of manipulation, secrecy and lies. SHORT CUTS depicts a group of young people facing the normal challenges of growing up, in and out of school, using a camera in all its functions to learn about their lives.'

'Kurt's video of his elderly neighbour, Mrs Green, begins as a joke. He wants to hurt the old lady by making her seem stupid, but the more time he spends with her the more he gets to like her. The new Kurt surprises his classmates, but not Mrs Green. She always knew there was more to the sullen boy. Kurt and Mrs Green form a close bond that is broken when she passes away before his video is completed.'
