Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

On filmmaking, politics and the inevitable whiteness of zombies.


Picture grade school aged multiracial Draculas, Frankensteins, mummies and werewolves, seated at school desks, drawing pictures with crayons. We see the pictures they’ve drawn. All the zombies are Caucasian, and voracious looking.

Jeff Dorchen is sequestered in his filmmaking hole, and all he can do is imagine a world where Rick Santorum eases into a serape, Hillary Clinton helps black men move out of Harlem, and zombies reclaim their Afro-Caribbean roots from the cold, be-flanneled hands of white appropriators.
