After a serial killer strikes again in her hometown, welfare kid Nicole heads south of the border to stay with her father, a boozy, fist-swinging Vietnam veteran. But safety is elusive. And one neighbourhood danger is exchanged for another. And another. Jumping from crap car to seedy bar to crap car, 12-year-old Nicole hunts for a way out unscathed.
1991 is a coming-of-age story told through projected shadows and photographs. With a distinctive blend of analogue and digital technology that is matched by a truly astounding story, Guilty by Association digs deep into a culture of misogyny and the resilience of youth. A thirty minute Long Table Discussion follows the performance, facilitated by Jessica Carmichael.
