The Greater Evil
2015 · 7:51 · produced by Lee Perna · written and directed by William R. Coughlan
Lilith Delaney has snagged a plum assignment with the campaign team of Victor Balch, a brash but popular candidate for the Presidency. Though initially seeing it as just another job, Lilith gradually falls under the candidate’s spell… until she catches a glimpse of his horrific true nature.
Tohubohu’s crack creative team — apparently not satisfied with back-to-back competitions in DC and Baltimore — decided to venture into the madcap weekend waters for yet a third time in a single season as part of the inaugural 48 Hour Film Politics & Comedy Project. In a departure from our usual comedic fare, “The Greater Evil” explored themes of political extremism and the nature of unquestioning support. The film was created entirely between September 25th through the 27th, 2015, and premiered at the Burke Theater at the Naval Heritage Center on Friday, October 2 — ultimately taking “Best Film” honors.
