Notes: I made this vid for [personal profile] thingswithwings's playlist "Colonization and its Discontents" for the [community profile] wiscon_vidparty this year. This is a vid I'd been talking about making for a while, and I have a lot of feelings about it, which I might put in another post when I haven't been in a car for 13 hours.

Fuuuuuuck. Okay:

The way you've cut him repeatedly using the dead as tools is so upsetting. And then pocketing shit that does not belong to him ugh.

Him smugly writing FACT on the chalkboard is just the ultimate in western empiricism.

The military presence with the American flag and nuclear bomb oh my god. The shots of the dead and him receiving accolades holy shit!!

Also using the Star Wars villain music is such a brilliant move.

Seconding all of this. Plus the white kids' faces adoringly looking at him. And the lovely little quote at the end.
