Short movie: DICK

A short movie I made back when the Iraq war (and war in general) and the accompanying media farce were on my mind a lot. It was inspired in part by the story of Patrick Tillman, and the deluge of images and video material of brutal violence that started to appear in the media to the sound of cheers and newspeak.  It’s a story of the hero every boy believes in and how that hero doesn’t exist anymore, and probably never has – the hero was always a construct of cynical powers, an image to lure the young to murder and death.
