THE VIOLENCE OF A CIVILIZATION WITHOUT SECRETS | 2017 | 7 min | Co-directed by Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil and Jackson Polys
Synopsis: Filmmakers Adam and Zack Khalil, in collaboration with artist Jackson Polys, investigate the recent court case that decided the fate of the remains of a prehistoric Paleoamerican man found in Kennewick, Washington State in 1996. The video is an urgent reflection on indigenous sovereignty, the undead violence of museum archives, and post-mortem justice.
Nosferasta | 2021–ongoing | 32 min | Co-directed by Adam Khalil, Bayley Sweitzer, Oba
Synopsis: Spanning 500 years of colonial destruction, Nosferasta tells the story of Oba, a Rastafarian vampire, and Christopher Columbus, Oba’s original biter, as they spread the colonial infection throughout the “new world.” Formally a vampire film and series of installations, the stylistically impressionistic Nosferasta examines the guilt of being complicit in imperial conquest, while also acknowledging the difficulty of unlearning centuries of vampiric conditioning. At its core Nosferasta asks, how can you decolonize what’s in your blood?
