VASHTI, a music video made for longtime collaborator and composer Lanny Meyers, is completed! Lanny used the poem by Frances E.W. Harper (1825-1911) for lyrics to accompany his original score.
It tells the story of Vashti, the Queen of Persia, the first wife of King Ahasuerus (Xerxes) who loses her crown when she refuses to appear at a drunken council meeting wearing only her crown and nothing else.
Her act of feminist resistance is echoed through the ages in the video, culminating with the #MeToo movement of 2018.
