Bloodtime – Claiming the Territory brings to light the ironies embedded in a culture that seems simultaneously repelled by, yet drawn to, images of blood in television shows, movies and video games. Archival segments, still images and live-action footage interweave with commentaries that evolve an appreciation for these contradictions.
