Bight of the Twin – a film by Hazel Hill McCarthy III with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
Bight of the Twin is more than just another documentary film. This film itself is Vodun – it’s an object that has been activated by creation and by supporting this project, you get to participate in this ritual. We want you to join us in making a documentary film that will take viewers to Ouidah, Benin, the geographic heart of the Vodun religion, where friends and collaborators, director Hazel Hill McCarthy, III and cultural engineer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, explore the relationship between Vodun and Western secular art and performance by trying to answer the question of what embodiment is.
Bight of the Twin is many things film, art, drama, exploration, and Vodun. But beyond all this, it is also a film that is also working to give back to the community of its creation. Our goal is to assist children over 14 years old in continuing their education at the local school and onto higher education. After our last visit to Benin, our friends, family, and crew members raised money and provided the local school with 60 new benches and desks that were also built locally. We are setting up a charitable organization so that we can continue to help the school and its students in the long term. So while you are helping us create a film, a piece of art, you are also helping the community that is inspiring our work.
