WATCH: Darius Clark Monroe’s DIRT

By OckyDub | Posted Nov 14 2016 | 4 Comments  


From the director who created the infamous short film SLOW, Darius Clark Monroe has a new short titled DIRT. Staring Segun Akande; this is beautifully shot, the cinematography is on point and it is captivating but to be honest, I have no idea what it’s about. Does it represent karma, self-reflection or does it have to deal with men attempting to bury their pain and not dealing with it properly or constructively, thus creating a cycle of pain? I don’t know. Check out the short below. 

The short is described as:

“We survive in the midst of pure madness. Burying our souls, while suppressing fury. Perpetually mourning the loss of our former, present and future selves. To be black in the world is to be intimate with trauma and pain.”

What are your thoughts and what’s the meaning or message you come away with after viewing?
