Dir. George Lucas, 16mm B/W Sound 00:03:00

Produced in Fall 1965 while Lucas was a student at the University of Southern California. A young man runs and hides anxiously within a rural landscape. In his final dash across a field, to reach the border, he is gunned down. Over images of his inert body the soundtrack offers up snippets of speeches in which we're told that freedom is the only thing worth dying for.
