"Bold. There is no one left exploring new imagery and new sound so radically." - Werner Herzog
"Mindblowingly beautiful. Pure seeing and wonder … otherworldiness magic." - Willem Dafoe
Polia & Blastema, E. Elias Merhige's first foray into opera, is a 40 minute gnostic creation myth told through a visual tapestry which journeys into immensely desolate hellscapes of the inorganic as organic folding back onto itself in ever spiraling, fractally superimposing cataclysms of wormhole network (be)longing.
Polia & Blastema is being included in The Brainfeeder Films Collection Vol. 1, a collection of NFTs representing an anthology of short films. The Brainfeeder Film Collection is the first film series that curates the minds of today's most surreal filmmakers, mixing genres of sci-fi, horror and the absurd, to create a mind bending experience that will not be forgotten.
Aesthetically tempered by aspects of decay, rot, earth, and the meta- myth structure of human cognition, the multi-leveled world of Polia & Blastema is in-formed by Viennese Actionism as much as it is by Eugene Thacker’s notions of “the world without us”, of supernatural horror and dissolution, expressed in the separation and (re)union of two entities who in the end feast on one another in ritualistic ecstasy.
