Preemptive Disappearance by Francisca Benitez
Melancholy street scenes and interiors offer counterpart to the story of a man wrongfully arrested. A narrator tells the story of the day she believed her husband had disappeared, only to discover he had been arrested under dubious circumstances. The speaker describes the encounters with the NYPD eventually reveal a case of racial profiling. A neighborhood absent of people and uninhabited interiors serve as melancholy counterparts to the intimate voiceover.
