  3. Covered in heavy chains, a man labors to carry his burden past towering institutions of religion, education and media. An old negro prison song lays a stirring auditory backdrop for this struggle against his burdens.

    Hypnotized by media and lost in the matrix of society, he uses an ancestral prayer as a weapon to shut down the system and gain momentary freedom, but everyone knows the matrix only creates slaves.

    'Slave' is the predicate to the subject of it’s complementary film, “Decisions”. Slave looks at the macrocosm of institutions such as religion, education and media and how they influence us. When paired, 'Slave' and 'Decisions' seeks to raise a simple question. What type of decisions are we making as a community of African-Americans, and how do those decisions effect us individually as African-Americans?
