Third Alternate Executor is a short film exploring the life, mortality and ephemera of my uncle Kenny, a human deeply entrenched in an eccentric version of normative, white, lower-class social structures. The piece seeks to elaborate on performance masculinity, objecthood, class and “The American Dream.” The film serves as a form of reconciliation between the distorted cowboy masculinity modeled throughout my youth, and the long term impacts this trope has on the lived experience.
