Worked on this really great film that premiers today on MOCAtv with some really great friends! Y’all are incredible! <3
Friends and lovers……today a video that I wrote and directed premiers through the Museum of Contemporary Art’s online forum for film/video MOCAtv. It stars WIFE, the performance art troupe out of Los Angeles. Based on a poem that I wrote entitled The Passengers, it’s a love story that predates time and space. It’s for you Sterling….I love you so much. We were matter and anti-matter falling endlessly in love.
In The Passengers, a hybrid poem-performance set in an altered, semi-futuristic landscape, WIFE explores the cycle of life and death, and the mystical unions that are found beyond the body.
We are not the vessel. We are the passengers.
