In the summer of 2011, filmmaker Michael Marabella stumbled upon an unlabeled cassette tape in a thrift store. The tape contained the collected thoughts and musings of a young woman who referred to herself only as “K.R.,” recorded over a four-month period in 1976.
UNWOUND features four different entries from the tape adapted for film, each entry conceptualized and executed by a different director. Each director worked from the source material of the 1976 cassette tape; their segments influenced by their own impressions of K.R.
By presenting four distinct perspectives on the girl from the tape, UNWOUND explores not only the ways one person can appear in the eyes of others, but also the ways that the memory of a person can come to influence others—even complete strangers, separated by many years.
