FRAGMENTS OF THE BOY I WISH I WAS…
In 1988 police raided Victor Salva’s home and discovered a slew of VHS video tapes which contained child pornography, some of which featured Nathan. Following a confession and conviction Salva would serve 15-18 months out of a three year sentence on only the most minor charges. Four out of a total eleven.
After thirty years of relative silence Nathan Forrest Winters is ready to tell his story on his own terms. For two weeks director Connar Frazier sat with Nathan in a motel room and documented his story on film, a both exhausting and rewarding experience. Since the beginning Winters and Frazier have sought to make a new kind of cinematic experience, and they believe they have done that with The Boy. Drawing from the story of Victor Salva’s secret tapes, this story of six years of abuse will be relayed on a series of tapes and other forms of media which will make the viewing of this work a unique experience for its audience. Individuals will be submersed in this never before told account in a new and original way.
