Abducted in Plain Sight
First screened in May 2018
Director: Skye Borgman. Documentary about the abduction of a young woman, staged as an alien abduction, seemingly carried out with her own consent and with the implicit encouragement of her family. Twitter Capsule:
Absolutely unreal real story about sexual abuse, predatory manipulation, and bottomless American credulity.
As a case study of all the subjects I just mentioned, this offers a valuable if extreme window. Formally and stylistically, pretty average.
