Bad Hostage

In March 1973, the filmmaker’s grandmother was in an impossible situation when two men held her and her five children at gunpoint in their house. 50 years later, director Mimi Wilcox connects this personal story to the tales of Patty Hearst and Kristin Enmark. Featuring fresh interviews with Enmark, the person most closely associated with the origins of the term Stockholm Syndrome, we explore how human compassion comes into conflict with police aggression and institutional prejudice. Bad Hostage interrogates this misogynist myth and in doing so re-frames falsehoods and decades of pop culture lore.
