Englische Synopsis: A film essay reconsidering television newscasts I witnessed as a kid in the 1970's and early 1980's with an eye toward understanding their effect on my sense of personal and political identity in an increasingly vulnerable world.

Englische Werkbeschreibung: I Covered My Eyes investigates childhood notions of threat and safety by juxtaposing TV news broadcasts of tragic world events with home movie footage. The project was first conceived after seeing the televised images broadcast live on September 11 2001, and wondering what children must be feeling upon witnessing this horrific act within our own borders. Soon after, I wrote a list of the tragic events I distinctly remember witnessing on TV as a child in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. By adopting a child’s perspective, the film evokes my experience of learning about the outside world through news broadcasts, and the accompanying sense of threatened safety from forces outside my immediate family and community. As the sense of vulnerability grows throughout the film from abstract threats to more immediate and actual ones, the seemingly innocent and idyllic world of my childhood becomes overshadowed by an increasing awareness of its fragility and precariousness.
