18,000 Dead In Gordon Head

18,000 Dead In Gordon Head (2001) is a 13 minute, short film by Canadian film-maker Clive Holden, based on an actual murder he witnessed while visiting his hometown in Victoria, British Columbia.


On a quiet, suburban street in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and in the middle of the afternoon on a summer's day in 1982, Clive Holden witnessed the murder of a teenaged girl as she was killed by a sniper's bullet. A year later, Holden returned to the scene of the senseless slaying to lie with his camera on the spot where she died, in order to film and capture the effect of her tragic and sudden death.
