Sony’s Playstation 3 game, Resistance 2, the sequel to Resistance: Fall of Man, is presented in the context of everyday life in the USA with “Graduation Party”, a mixture of home video and game footage. The home video picks up the mood of the United States in the alternative 1950s. A group of graduating young men celebrate with their families. As they throw their mortars in the air, their suburban street is turned into a nightmarish war zone, heralding the arrival of the Chimera.
