Cultural Soup

1987, 6:55 min, color, sound

Writes McCarthy: "The blending of youth - culturalization, the making of a soup. The son begat the father. The father begat the son. Culturalization as masturbation.

The child as a penis.
Revolving cultural conditioning
Perversion, abuse of innocence
By a corporate father
A heritage that is passed on."
