nolds Foundation Inc. of Winston

ment of a new stafewide leadership
The statement was issued in a noon

Reynolds Tobacco Company and the
son of the late Nancy Susan Reynolds,

have come forth from time to time, but
on the common man, whose contribu

skit for Rape Awareness Week

One out of every three American
women will be raped during her
lifetime, according to a presentation
of the Tin Drum Theatre Company
in the Pit yesterday as part of Rape
The presentation, narrated and
w ritten by James Davis and Jennifer
McCray of the Tin Drum Theatre,
tackled different attitudes regarding
sexuality in the United States.
"Rape is not the natural outcome
of men and women being together,"
said Davis, a junior from Burnsville.
"There are many countries in which
rape is virtually unheard of. The
reason that rape is so common in
the U.S. is our culture promotes the
sexual objectification of women."
For example, the group illustrated
how perfume advertisements, porno
graphy and societal pressure to dress
sexy are incorporated into everyday
attitudes regarding the role of
American men and women.
"We are not going to try and make
men feel guilty about being sexual,"
said McCray, a sophomore from
Atlantic Beach, Fla. "All men have
sex drives, but not all meaare
r u n i w t i
Rape is very common in Chapel
Hill, Davis said, and many rapes can
be prevented. The company's pres
entation was designed to let people
know how and when to say, "No."
The most violent and least com
mon type of rape is called violent
aggressive, Davis said. In this situa
tion, the woman is an arbitrary,
unknown victim of a pre-planned

A less violent and more common
type of rape is called the pick-up
rape, McCray said. This happens
after two people have just met in a
social situation such as a bar or
party. "This kind of rapist tends to
classify women in two distinct
categories - good girls and bad girls,"
McRay said, "that is, those who do
and those who dont.
Davis stressed that 80 percent of
all rape victims had been consuming
alcohol or other drugs.
The third and most common type
of rape is date-rape, Davis said.
Ninety percent of all rapes are date
rapes, most of which can be pre
vented, he said.
"The crux of the matter is this:
In this rape situation, as in the
previous ones, the woman must
communicate what she wants before
she loses control of what's going on,"
Davis also said date-rape situa
tions were much more complex than
the ones illustrated in the Pit, but
there was always a point at which
a woman could prevent a rape by
asserting what she wanted.

In a discussion after the showing
of his 1984 documentary "28Upw in
the Union Auditorium Sunday, direc
tor Michael Apted called his film a
"real-life soap opera," and said he
wanted to continue his 20-year exam

Up" is the kind of film that pops
up every few years to defy the
conventions of the average social
documentary, which is based on that
potentially boring procedure, the
interview. This film plays like a feature
film, and the real lives of its subjects
are as enthralling and dramatic as any
that can be created in the cinema.
Apted's method for the film was
simple. He took 14 kids, interviewed
them at the age of 7 on such varying
subjects as their education, their ideas
about their futures and even their
philosophies on the opposite sex.
Then, .he checked, back with them
every seven years.
Apted said the task of putting
together the film was enormous
because of the amount of film footage
he had and the range of subjects he
covered. He said the task became
longer and more difficult each time

The stage adaptation of Joyce Carol
Oates' short story "Narcotic" from her
"The Goddess and Other Women"
anthology is being presented by the
UNC Reader's Theatre this week.
Opening tonight, the play is about
an evening in the life of Neil Myer, a
hospital orderly ("a nobody, really"),
who decides to visit Paula Shapley, who
has just been released from the hospital
after being treated for a barbiturate

Apted had no intention of contin
uing the project after the initial
production, called "TUpfor Grenada
Television in 1963, he said. But the
public's reaction to the show was
enormous. "It became a part of the
culture," he said.
The public's reaction made him
realize that this was something that
should be continued For him, the
possibilities of making SUp" meant
making more than just a piece of
entertainment; the film is an honest
social document of the lives of British
citizens over the past two decades.
And it was Michael's intense belief
in the value of the documentary that
convinced him to release it as a full
fledged film to paying audiences.
"I realized that the whole thing was
worth more than just going through
the cathode ray tube on PBS against
"Dynasty or whatever," he said.
He was right. w28Up" is an intense,
direct film with stunning emotional

voice is Neil's superego, and the female
voice his romantic self." .
Doug Wagner, a sophomore drama
major from High Point, plays the male
character. "Neil is the most normal and
conservative character IVe ever played,"
Cybele Kaufmann, a sophomore
from Raleigh, plays the frail and
vulnerable Paula. She said she felt

impact. It does not hold back any
thing. While some of the subjects end
up leading productive, successful lives,
others do not make it. If the film
teaches anything, it teaches that life
is an undertaking, and how far one
gets depends largely on how much
effort one is willing to put into it. Luck
may be a factor, as one of the film's'
very successful subjects says, but the
film shows us that hard work, ambi
tion and a belief in one's purpose are
much more important.
Apted said he had two major regrets
about the film. He said he didn't
interview enough women, and by
missing that opportunity he totally
missed the feminist revolution.
Secondly, he said he wished he had
interviewed more middle class people.
Had he done that, he would have made
a better statement about what was
happening in the troubled British
economy, he said.
Apted has received both praise and
criticism from sociologists and psy
chologists about the film, but he
remained down-to-earth about his
abilities as a social filmmaker.
"All 1 have is my interest in the
people," he said. "I don't feel equipped
to bring any professional opinions to

and the initial casting was done in late
February, the present cast and crew
member Karen Verhaeghe have been

the first dress rehearsal Sunday evening,
only minor hitches had to be ironed out.
What sustains the audience's interest
in this production is the well
coordinated narration of Robin Agnew
and Cassie Jacobs. "We are interpre

In closing, Apted spoke of some of
his experiences with the people in his
film during interviews. He explained
that the 14-year-old portion of the
interviews was so brief, because it was
"horrendous" dealing with teenage
minds. "The minds of them at 14 were
fairly impenetrable," he said.
He expressed regret that one of the
men was not completely open and
honest with his answers. When Apted
would ask a question about the man's
personal feelings about his life, the
man would get defensive. Apted said
he didn't think that subject would
participate in the 1991 interviews. But
he said he did believe that the two
men who did not participate in the
1984 interviews would decide to do
it in 1991, since the film has become
Finally, Apted found fault with his
tendency to impose his own ideas and
philosophies on his subjects, while he
interviewed them. He said that may
have been the reason some of them
were defensive with their answers at
times. But he didn't come down on
himself too hard.
"A filmmaker is not some sort of
great cerebral person," he said. "I
mean, he is who he is."
