Bight of the Twin is an experimental visual and musical journey that weaves a narrative from disparate worlds, that of cultural engineer and artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and the Vodoun practitioners of Benin, Africa. Director, Hazel Hill McCarthy III, has worked to create a unique artifact that is an ode to both creation and ritual. The film, open to multiple readings and interpretations, unfolds like a piece of music, with variations on a melody that are returned to and repeated with subtle differences. The sonic landscapes is built through using tracks by COUM TRANSMISSIONS, THROBBING GRISTLE, PTV and DJM[REX.
