Human Beings

Human Beings, a 16 mm black and white film, critiques patriarchal power and the current political system in the United States that are controlling media and limiting privacy. The society underneath the dome represents one with heightened security, government control over the citizens and over their media. The radio recordings that are heard in and out of static come from public radio and have largely been shut out of the mainstream media. They represent the last genuine voices making their way through the airwaves before our society is cut off from the rest of the world completely and to the reality of what our government is doing to people of other nations.
