SHORT FILM TRAILER: NORMAL PORN FOR NORMAL PEOPLE, 4min., Australia, Experimental

Directed by Amber Rose McNeill

An appropriated media piece that explores our societal need to consume violence for entertainment. The film comments on the fetishism and romanticizing of violent imagery, while observing the link to commercial consumerism that both demonizes and exploits human sexuality. Interview segments from prominent serial killers expose and echo our endless need to devour salacious content by glorifying and normalising both real and fictional violence.
