Doze of Reality Satire is a staple of the film industry, and provides powerful social commentary and uses humor to entertain audiences. Satire is the use of humor, irony, sarcasm to address something/someone. Public figures, such as politicians, are often the subject of satire, but satirists can take aim at other targets as well—from societal conventions to government policies.  In our short film, Doze of Reality, Wide Angle’s high school video team drew inspiration from music videos, movies, and television series like “Dear, White People” to gain the attention of the viewer using a Menippean-style of satire which targets mindsets or world views. This project exercised our skills in research, ideation, script-writing, project management, leadership, and video production.   Watch the video and reflect on your implicit biases. 00:04:19 3:15 PM
