THE DIVINE RIGHT
LE DROIT DIVIN

by Rick RAXLEN
1985 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 11' 00

An adaptation of J. G. Frazer's text - Golden Bough - THE DIVINE RIGHT was conceived as a series of improvised dramatic moments for the camera. As the narrator advises the spectator about regicide - the archaic act of killing the king when he grows ill or feeble - a man dressed in a Los Angeles Kings' hockey sweater covers the emblem of a crown with a white cloth. The tape was produced at the Experimental Television Centre, Owego, New York.
