Synopsis

According to one study, the average burglary takes less than eight minutes. Sara Magenheimer structures her short film based on this finding, editing it down to exactly 7 minutes and 22 seconds. Under this format she creates a rich collage drawn from security camera images, pop culture, political newscasts, and even medieval art. The result is a playful exploration of the boundaries and character of everyday narratives.
