Film director Deborah Kampmeier’s “Tape” has been described as “one of the very first dramas of the #MeToo era to confront, head-on, what harassment looks like and how it really works.”
As noted in The New York Times, “‘Tape’ is based on the account of actress, Annarosa Mudd, who works with Ms. Kampmeier and helped turn her story into the film. She also joined the cast — not to play the actress, but to portray a former victim-turned-avenger who is stalking the agent.”
Her weapon of choice is a series of auto-focusing surveillance cameras. As figures move across the frame, the camera shifts focus — which results in a rolling blur effect. This shifting focus, used throughout the film, was the logical inspiration for the titles.
