After struggling with depression all his life, a young man attempts suicide in his bathtub. As he bleeds out, he encounters the memory of his old school teacher, and debates with him the merits of fighting on, or letting go and passing away.

    The VC Digital Posse rides off into places unknown, and into the void steps a new, uncouth class of ruffians hailing from Visual Communications’ vanguard Armed With a Camera Fellowship and UCLA’s Center for Ethnocommunications. At turns callow and visionary, this collection of short works is poised to inspire, surprise, and delight. — Abraham Ferrer
