Black Up That White Ass II  /  2009

âBlack Up That White Ass IIâ, a 26 minute animated video work, is a Good vs. Evil story of contemporary life in South Africa weaved through erotic pornography, historic battle stories, biblical parables, and physcadelic dream sequences.

Influenced by the tradition of storytelling in the medium of woodcuts, Slasher gore, Z-grade gangster films, local politics, witchdoctors, kids cartoons, MTV, penis extension machines, arcadia, strip clubs, tabloid horror stories, and the lure of casinos, this film speaks to us about the universal themes of sex, love, violence, beauty, and things falling apart.

With the meticulous appropriation of John Muafangejo, Big Wet Asses III, the Battle of Rorkes Drift in KwaZulu-Natal, the parable of the Good Shepard, and the Coen brothersâ Big Lebowski, Platter creates an ultra primitive, anti-aesthetic take on what it means to be alive in South Africa today.

Platter works with the timeâconsuming medium of animation, each sequence laboriously digitally handmade. The filmâs soundtrack is specifically composed by Platterâs frequent collaborator Captain Asthma, and includes shades of Death Metal, Rozalla Millerâs âEverybodyâs Freeâ, Kenny Rogers, South African Maskanda, and New Age Afro Blues Physcadelica.
