Southern Gothic Filmmaking and the Naga Pepper


Southern Gothic filmmaking concerns itself with the absurd, the grotesque, and the macabre. By utilizing the natural potency of the Naga pepper I will attempt to describe, to the best of my ability, how this form of abstractness is distant from our comfortable perspective of traditional narratives and invites a deeper inquiry into it’s meaning. The pepper’s natural effects will provide my perspective in conjunction with improvisational enlightenment to this style of film production.
