Politics and culture Vision Mills, C. Wright (Charles Wright), 1916-1962
Nancy Buchanan's work addresses complacency and suffering, using the concept of sight as a departure point. Spoken-text in English and Spanish detail the kidnapping and murder of a woman's husband, and her subsequent interrogation by the police. Visual text quotes from a Buddhist work on awakening others to the reality of suffering and from the American sociologist C. Wright Mills. Close-up shots of the human eye are manipulated to produce unusual effects. Narrators recite clich?
