Illuminati Castrati is a debut short film written & directed by queer horror enthusiast Ani White (they/them), who recently completed a Doctorate in Media & Communication.
The film centres on a gay vampire, cruising for men to join his harem. The project seeks to make the queer subtext of the horror genre explicit, while also using horror to explore the darker side of queer communities.
An experienced cast and crew is ready to go, with an initial 10K saved by the filmmaker, but we need 5K more to achieve a professional standard. Over Aotearoa/New Zealand Pride Month, we appreciate any support for this queer art project.
