I wrote Drip after a whole summer of my neighbor’s air conditioner dripping on my window sill. After many sleepless nights and visions of murdering my upstairs' neighbor this story was born. The real catalyst, however, was when my partner came home with four racks of ribs he received from a friend in a white force flex trash bag that he brought home via the city bus. On his way home with the bloody meat weighing down the white bag, stretched thin, he was worried that other passengers might be alarmed by the grotesque sight, but alas no one bothered or questioned the young white man. White privilege is a concept that many white Americans are currently confronting, or should be. This film is a response to what it means to have that privilege and how one’s whiteness influences those around them.
