...a short film by Walter Wynn

Allison Krause (April 23, 1951 - May 4, 1970) was an honors student at Kent State University, Ohio, when she was shot and killed by the Ohio National Guard in the Kent State shootings, while protesting the invasion of Cambodia and the presence of the National Guard on the Kent State campus.The Guardsmen opened fire on a group of unarmed students, killing four of them, at an average distance of about 106 meters. Allison was shot in the left side of her body at about 105 meters fatally wounding her. She died from her injuries later that same day.

Altogether, sixty-seven shots were fired by the Guardsmen in 13 seconds.The other students killed in the shootings were Jeffrey Glenn Miller, Sandra Lee Scheuer and William Knox Schroeder. In addition, nine other students were wounded in the gunfire.

The shootings led to protests and a national student strike, causing hundreds of campuses to close because of both violent and non-violent demonstrations. The Kent State campus remained closed for six weeks. Five days after the shootings, 100,000 people demonstrated in Washington, D.C. against the war.
