War Zone

War Zone
1:16:00 | 1998

Categories: Documentary, Arts and Culture

WAR ZONE is about sex, power, and what happens when men - either knowingly or unknowingly - threaten a woman's right to walk undisturbed on the streets.  What exactly do catcalls, leers, or a whole litany of other behaviors mean to a woman?  And why do men engage in these behaviors? Shot all over the United States, Maggie Hadleigh-West turns her camera on men in the same way that they turn their aggression on her. WAR ZONE is 76 minutes of explosive footage as the filmmaker places herself in very real danger by daring to ask the men on the streets why they are treating a complete stranger in a sexual way.  In the process, she has been hit, yelled at, apologized to and engaged in mesmerizing conversations with the men that have harassed her.  Through these conversations, Hadleigh-West reveals the anger, fear and frustration as well as the affection, admiration and humor that characterizes relationships between men and women. This movie is guaranteed to get men and women talking about their often very different experiences in public.

An incredibly genuine, well made film. I have never experienced anything that so accurately and intimately captures women's daily struggle with sexual harrassment in public. Maggie Hadleigh-West puts into words the very problem that women are told does not exist.

This is horrible. Look how much focus women want and lengths they go to for attention magazines, make up, fake lashes, weave, breast. But then when men look they are called out on camera? It's human nature to look at other sex put a damn shirt on and you wouldn't get those remarks. This woman is crazy and twist half the guys comments around she's bitching they look down at breast when her shirt doesn't button till bottom of cleavage it has almost nothing on the back! Get a life girl get over yourself and saying you don't like the looks comments and attention you dressed that way knowing what comments men would make and tried making a boo who movie from it! The only sorry you deserve is for the pity felt inside you need help and to see the media and what girls dream of entire life and that's to be center of attention you film Blk n white to hide your make up and attempts for attention to have footage for this lame documentary I cut short due to anger you bring out falsely reporting this topic how many men said you twisting my actions up? GET A LIFE SERIOUSLY you have mental problems
