SORT 'The Cult Film' by Joseph Delaney
This short film by Joseph Delaney for his subversive zine SORT follows the rise and fall of an imaginary cult. Written and narrated by Rose McGowan, who herself was raised in a cult, the viewer is given an inside look at the hedonism, communalism and isolation of Delaney’s fictional sect.
The result is a dark, stylised and subversive video laced with nudity, underground fetish clubs, submission and domination. Part of an interesting subculture emerging that crosses music, politics and fashion, Delaney says: "The narrative around the global political situation is reading more and more like the retelling of some cult-like dystopian world, so maybe it's time to hijack that narrative."
