USA, 1996
Length: 103'
Director: Ross McElwee

“Catastrophe, disaster, tragedy: if it bleeds, it leads. In an attempt to go beyond the stock figures of the evening news—victims of earthquake, disease, and murder—McElwee travels from town to town filming these human interest stories over a period of several years. When terrible things happen, how do such people go on? And how can McElwee’s own newborn son be brought into such a bizarre and frightening world?”*
