Abstract

In October 1983, 8-year-old Christine Jessop went missing from the tiny Ontario town of Queensville. The discovery of her body months later sparked one of Canada's most embarrassing murder investigations. Like Bone From Skin revisits Queensville in the days after Christine Jessop's disappearance and discovery, recreates the fixed image of death and public record, and focuses its lens on five fictional characters who face the challenge of looking at the events of their own lives while watching the death of a child unfold in their midst.
