Dark Night – A Short Film

Heard of Billy Marshall Stoneking’s Tribal Storytelling Workshop? He reminded me what the essence of telling a story is… of simple things that I had long forgotten… that all ideas must be shown as “things”, as “objects”, and emotions shown as actions… took it to a different level of understanding…

Within the story, one hits upon a wall…. at which point, everything you can “think up” is wrong… and you have to leave it to intuition. This film was inspired on that… to explore the long dark night of the soul.

And the other reason for this film is that I felt that people simply do not know how to make spiritual films… they make it seem too surreal or “out of this world” – where the very realness of it is neglected…. this film was an experiment in revealing the realness.
