Second Seed is a dance horror film responding to D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation. Griffith’s film is an assertion of white cultural and intellectual supremacy, a call to arms against the changing social/racial structure of the United States. Our film is an exploration of white-victimhood and its enduring viral effect on American politics and relationships. Through choreography, Second Seed tells the story of a white family’s descent into madness.
Screening in the Purple Jellydisc Shorts block.
