James P. Gannon | 9 MIN | USA
Memories can become muddled over time and they certainly have for Jack and Betty. In 1971 they were hit by a train while on a trip to Cape May, NJ, and survived. 50 years later they return to the “scene of the crime” to discuss what happened that fateful September morning. Shot entirely on Kodak Super 8 film, DEERWOODS DEATHTRAP explores the deadly accident and the conflicting memories surrounding it.
