Our film, Psyche, is about a teenage girl, Deirdre, who is being physically and emotionally abused by a family friend, a man named Channing. Channing has been sexually assaulting Deirdre as well as causing her to have bruises on her body. Deirdre’s family does not help her in her situation, thus she feels that she has no way of escaping her trauma. This is made worse when she discovers that she is pregnant with Channing’s baby, and this drives her to believe suicide is her only option to be free of her pain. The editing theories that I am going to be using in my editing of the short film Psyche are as follows: From Ken Dancyger’s The Technique Of Film Video Editing: History, Theory and Practice: Vsevolod I.

This results in a communication breakdown and Georgie is contemplating leaving her husband and “how numb she had become, as if she had spent a decade submerged in frigid water”(p.266). Crummey uses the symbol of drowning to emphasize Georgies emotional distance.
