I finished this piece as the final project for my video course in December. [I posted it in on YouTube in February—hello, time travel.]
In this short film, Lois Frazier, a 59-year-old woman in long-term addiction recovery, discusses the day 25 years ago when her manipulative ex-boyfriend, Mike, whom she calls “the man that I loved,” tried to kill her.
Frazier reads from her notes at times because she has said her mind doesn’t work as well as it used to due to her former drug use. It was her idea to write down her thoughts and read them, while later we filmed at her former apartment in Roxbury as she answered questions about that day.
