Nick Zedd (1959-2022)
War is Menstrual Envy (1992)
Iconoclastic underground filmmaker Nick Zedd directed and starred in this visually brutal tale, in which a collection of short vignettes eventually cohere into a larger narrative. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, the story finds a handful of ragged survivors attempting to communicate with dolphins, while another cadre of survivors have made it their crusade to destroy all the world's religions. Meanwhile, mutilation, bizarre sex, and deformity are among the commonplace horrors which dominate the arid landscape. War Is Menstrual Envy features performances from Annie Sprinkle and Kembra Pfahler.
