and 18 SECONDS
Nori Mizukami (US, 10 min)
What would you do in 18 seconds if a sexual assault unfolded in front of you? A Brooklyn youth and Criminal Justice majored student, Jasheem Smiley, recorded a midnight subway sexual assault with his iPhone, and he uploaded the video clip on Youtube. He claims his action was necessary. A shocking confession by a sexual assault witness.
Two driven, imperfect women are the heroes of this contemporary Western. From opposite sides of the track — a privileged young doctor and a convicted felon with ties to the Black Panthers — Anna (Lily Rabe) and Tess (LisaGay Hamilton) have nothing in common except a fatal pessimism about life, the legacy of deep personal loss. But fate carves a bridge between the two outsiders — and, united in a grief that sets them apart from the world, they form an unlikely, mythic alliance, seeking justice outside the law.
