Blind Spot trailer

"Vivid and accurate. As a homicide researcher, I wish everyone would see 'Blind Spot' for its moving portrayal of the real circumstances under which women kill."
Elicka S.L. Peterson Criminologist, University of Missouri at St. Louis

"An emotionally powerful and analytically provocative film. Narrated through the women's own voices with a richness of detail and self-reflection about both their past and their prison experiences, this film suggests multiple themes for discussion in classes in women studies, sociology, social work, criminal justice, social work and social psychology."
Rachel Kahn-Hut San Francisco State University

"Blind Spot is a spare and moving poem, a meditation on violence, death and retribution as these touch women's lives."
Sara Halprin, writer

Because murder by women is still relatively rare--only one out of eight murders in the United States is committed by a woman--women's own stories provide unique insights into the circumstances leading to these violent acts. In this absorbing documentary, intimate one-on-one interviews with six women murderers are combined with re-enactments of their background experience and visual re-creations of their interior lives. Sharing and reflecting on their memories, fantasies, dreams, and anger, the six women candidly describe their actions as perpetrators in detail and address the issue of having taken a life. Interspersed between their separate stories are their individual reflections on coping strategies, and life and relationships in prison. The film is a co-production of Allie Light, Irving Saraf and Julia Hilder. "Blind Spot" is a riveting encounter with throw-away children, out-of-control adults, and the emotional, psychological and spiritual consequences of murder.
