WARNING: This video may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.

An experimental documentary/narrative fashioned into an attack on the disturbing omnipotence of hyperrealism and fascist banality – best symbolized by Donald Trump’s burning plastic effigy. Commodity Trading is a series of films incorporating all media available from super 8, 16mm, 35mm, cellphone, and high-resolution digital, into a violent collage of the simulacral tumult of media waste and the fury/anger of racism in the wake of the rise of Alt-Right neo-fascism.
