Leave No Trace 2022
1h 48m | Documentary | June 2022 (USA)
The Boy Scouts Of America reached a $2.7 billion agreement over sex abuse claims, the largest such settlement in history.
Leave No Trace, may be a hint about the secrecy of the Boy Scouts but it is also their respect of nature and leaving no trace following their countless outdoor outings. The film chronicles the advent of the Boy Scouts and how they evolved over the years through the lens of the evolution of America as the two were often hand in hand. However, sexual abuse was happening from the start of their founding and continued unimpeded despite the fact that the Boy Scouts knew about it thought did nothing. Based on this, one can’t help but think that they were protecting their own reputations over protecting their own scouts. Being mostly children at the time, they were perhaps not the best equipped to deal with their abuse in the moment but the full extent of that damage could be felt upon reaching their adult years with some dealing with that trauma better than others. Watching the victims talk about their experiences was simply heartbreaking while seeing some recover from their ordeals and make lives for themselves was uplifting.
