Why this Film?

The heart of the story is exploring the experience of realizing that people you love, often formative people in your life, are willing to support systems that lead to the death of marginalized people.


What this film is about.

The film uses horror as a metaphor to explore these themes. It's playing in the world of zombie tropes, but it purposefully twist the tropes in ways that tie back to the ideas central to the script. In this world, the only people affected by the deadly virus are white people. The inherent drama is not focused on the dangers of being attacked by the infected, but the racial tension between the uninfected. I want to comment both on issues of race on a personal and systemic level, and also delve into the idea of those of us who are content to be "Followers." People who stand back and allow horrible things to happen to marginalized people because they're unwilling to risk themselves.
