XXX.

An Experimental Short

Reel Therapy. Using fiction as a clinical tool. Film and movies can be a form of therapy.

Combined Spike Lee’s Malcolm X (1992) with staged photography of myself, and Kendrick Lamar’s “XXX,” to form a shock to senses. Reverses prior subconscious learning via flickering images and words past the point of consciousness, sense, and physical reality. Taps into deeper yearning for understanding of history, and points of disconnect.

“It pictures a stolen and dangerously sold-out America, allowing examples of popular culture to self-indict. Racial and religious insanity, monopolization of wealth and the purposeful dumbing down of citizens and addiction to war oppose a Beat playfulness…”

-Ken Jacobs on “Star Spangled to Death”
