AND THEN I WOKE (A VICARIOUS CATACLYSMIC EVENT)
AND THEN I WOKE (A VICARIOUS CATACLYSMIC EVENT) leaps from laptops, iPads and computer screens to explore the phenomenon of YouTube-captured violence perpetrated on African-Americans by those most entrusted with their safety...law enforcement police officers.  Seen by millions around the world in first-person video, the murders of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, and dozens of others demand an answer to one heartbreaking question: how did we get to this place?

Inspired by Peter Handke's masterpiece "Self-Accusation," AND THEN I WOKE steps back to our earliest beginnings, to look at how we become who we are...not only that black lives matter, but how they are made.  In a world where watching a murder is just one click of a mouse away, the scientific term for these psychic shocks -- "vicarious cataclysmic events" -- becomes a thrilling reimagining of our quest to understand our fellow humans.
