THE YOUTH ARE IN REVOLT (2015)

The Youth Are in Revolt is a short stop motion film recalling the events in Ferguson, MO concerning the death of Michael Brown. This film includes sound bites from actual protest footage and news coverage. Using chess pieces, I intend to challenge the typical notions of color theory tied to race.

MUSIC: Taro performed by Alt-J
HEADLINE: Julie Bosman and Emma G. Fitzsimmons, "Grief and Protests Follow Shooting of a Teenager." The New York Times. August 10, 2014.
