Summer begins tomorrow and besides tying up some loose ends, my main focus will be HELL.
This is a short video project in which the Nine Cirlces of Hell from Dantes INFERNO will be retold each by one actress: nine different stories, nine different styles, nine different archetypes, nine different messages…Each one a minute long.
This will be the most opinionated, emotional, raw, political, artistic and empowering production I’ve ever done. So far in my musings my influences cover everyone from Maya Deren to Mata Hari. It will be Global too with actresses from the U.S., Brazil, and Europe on board. There are tie-ins to fairy tales and the classics, and a few surprises!
I’ll take you with me along the way as I write, film, photograph, edit and create these visual Cantos which lead you through Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud, and Treachery.
Join me, won’t you?
