Hap Kindem One of my television-radio-film professors also showed this to his class. I saw it myself. Most people weren't disturbed by the film when they saw it -- because they thought it was REAL. Which, when you think about it, is a rather disturbing commentary in itself. I thought it was real right until the very end, when I sensed the woman in the film was performing; there were some minor slips in her performance that made me realize the entire thing had been faked. We had to write papers on our reactions to the film, and I think only two people in the whole class realized the movie was not what it pretended to be.
