As reported in the Miami Herald, years before the Valentine’s Day Massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the Modern Art Music Movement produced an award-winning short film titled, “Crackhead Jesus: The Movie”, as part of a seventy-two hour film competition near Parkland, Florida, in Delray Beach. The film was made as an artistic warning to the general public about toxic leadership and how it spreads, over time, with apathy, from the top down and inside out, to the detriment of democracy and humankind. A deleted scene from the censored film tells the story of how North Bay Village Chief of Police Scott Israel’s incompetence and ignorance of warnings endangered the community he was paid to protect.
Behind the camera and under the mask, acting as the villain, “Crackhead Jesus”, an alleged serial-killer spinal-surgeon stalking Hurricane Wilma victims struggling to survive in a high rise death trap; a ravaged monolith, without windows, walls or doors, the actor, Victor-Hugo Vaca II, paints a dystopia governed by a toothless “see something, say something” mantra, propagated through fake news propaganda, that enables serial-killers and mass-murderers to roam free, while stalking humans in schools, places of worship and seemingly safe communities, across the United States.
As reported in The Miami Herald and Miami New Times, the frightfully disturbing, surreal vision of magic realism, captured on film, in North Bay Village, Florida, following Hurricane Wilma, exposed global audiences attending Art Basel Miami Art Week’s, “Crackhead Jesus is Coming” Exhibits, to the fruitless nature of living under a false sense of security, provided by toxic leadership, who continually fail to safeguard communities filled with children, pets and monsters.
A 3/4 page article in the Miami Herald completely ignored allegations that North Bay Village Chief of Police, Scott Israel, had lost evidence in a case made against the prominent Baltimore, Maryland spinal-surgeon, Doctor Charles Edwards, an alleged serial-killer spinal surgeon, operating under the FBI’s nose.
“Crackhead Jesus: The Movie” premiered at a theater near Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida sans the video titled, “Ghosts”, which was omitted from the 72-Hour Film Making Competition version, due to time constraints and Delray Beach Film Festival rules.
The short film titled, “Ghosts”, features footage of the Grand View Palace, in North Bay Village, where Chief of Police Scott Israel struggled to keep his community safe in the wake of Hurricane Wilma. The security system, under his leadership, failed, leaving high rise residents to fend for themselves with growing rumors of an alleged serial-killer on the loose, in a building without working sprinkler systems, and no windows, walls or doors for security against deadly intruders.
With music by 3KStatic, the video produced and directed by Modern Art Music Movement founder Victor-Hugo Vaca II features a cameo by Jamie Lee Smith of “Global Rockstar Productions”. Cinematogrophy and editing by Casey Lazel.
