Suicide Bomber and Victim | Documentary Idea
by Scott Lancaster
(Berkeley, CA, USA)
We read about, hear, and see stories almost every day about suicide bombings. While these stories are sad, they remain apart from our reality when we do not know the people involved. I would like to see a documentary that follows the separate lives of a suicide bomber and his/her victims. The intersection is the ending of the documentary. I believe this could be done to bring the senselessness of this form of terrorism into focus. If it could deter some people from choosing this method of war, then it would be of immense value. At ther very least, its message would be powerful.
Documentary Title suggestion: "Intersection"
