SHTISEL, Robbery Episode

https://mattkprovideo.com/2019/11/03/shtisel-robbery-episode/

I have some thoughts about the episode “Akiva’s Portrait“ (season one episode 7).

( SPOILERS)

In one key scene, a Haredim man sees all the various cash in Gitti’s apartment. He comes back a few minutes later with a stocking over his head and a box cutter in his hand. He attempts armed robbery against Gitti.  All Gitti has to do is yell at the robber passionately enough to get him to run away.

It is amusing enough that all she had to do was yell at him. He was armed with a sharp object and was ( presumably) physically stronger than her. But her passionate “mama bear” energy was enough to get rid of him.

What is interesting is that this is a TV show about a group of people who themselves never watch television.  None of them have TV’s in their homes.  I’m sure they know what TV is, and may have seen some bits of TV programs in their lives. But they don’t live in front of it like most Americans do.

The average “westerner” like most of us has seen dozens, if not hundreds or maybe even thousands of crime TV shows. Whether it was scripted dramas or documentary shows, there is hardly any kind of violent crime we haven’t seen or heard described in detail on TV. We have seen countless robberies and seen how the Police catch robbers, and the things ineffective robbers have done to get caught and the things clever, effective robbers do to get away with their crimes.

Although I hope none of us would ever DO any violent crimes, we know LOTS of ways to do do it.  If one of us sees a TV show or even just reads a newspaper story about a crime, we can see right away what they did right or wrong.

When that Haredim man came back with a box cutter, I could barely tell he even had a stocking on his head. Its 100% obvious who it was, it was the same guy from the previous scene.

If this happened in an average American neighborhood, the crook would have thought of dozens of ways to rob that money.

He wouldn’t come right back, he wouldn’t wear the exact same clothes… he would have come up with a better disguise than just a stocking ( and where would a Haredim man even GET a woman’s stocking? Haredim women don’t wear those do they?) .  

He might have waited outside the apartment a while to see if the women had left, or would have thought of the dozens of other criminal techniques he had “learned” from TV. Gotten a better knife or gun…. and used much more violence and aggression, something else “learned” from western TV.

Curious Twins Video Script

“Today San Antonio is revered for the beautiful riverwalk, the courage of the defenders of the Alamo and for the culinary and cultural delights of Mexico and the Lone Star State.

 

As you walk around the brightly colored streets of downtown, remember that the city of San Antonio has a dark and tragic past.

 

San Antonio was originally founded by the Spanish in the year 1718. The Spanish would immediately bring disease and destruction to the indigenous people, leading to over a century of battles and the collapse of indigenous nations.

 

Echoes of our past remain, with haunting memories of gunfights, gambling and prostitution still haunting the city today.

 

The streets of downtown San Antonio are home to the deceased. With unmarked burial grounds that dot the Alamo compound, much of the downtown area is one large cemetery, paved over to make way for modern amenities.

 

This city has seen more disease, death and murder than many cities across America.

It’s no surprise that San Antonio has countless ghost stories and legends.

All Four Spots:

Shot with Canon DSLR’s, a slider, tripods and most of the footage was color corrected and time remapped in Adobe After Effects.  I was particularly proud of the saturation on some of the flower footage.

The video was edited using Adobe Premiere with graphics created with Adobe Animate (formerly called Flash) Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects.
