Home / Now Showing / THE BLOODY CHILD
Nina Menkes turns the arrest of a young US Marine – recently returned from the Gulf War and found digging a grave for his murdered wife in the middle of the Mojave desert – into a harrowing hallucinatory and mesmerizing look at the desolation of violence. Shot in North Africa and 29 Palms, California THE BLOODY CHILD chillingly illustrates how people lose all human, moral and ethical limits under punishing circumstances of civil war.
New restoration by The Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation with funding provided by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation.
