Gavin Gamboa


Polia & Blastema, the new cinematic opera from filmmaker E. Elias Merhige (Begotten, Shadow of the Vampire) and visual artist David Wexler (LOOOP) starring Nina McNeely, Jasmine Albuquerque and featuring vocalists Micaela Tobin (White Boy Scream) and Sharon Chohi Kim (The Industry), is a gnostic creation myth told through a hallucinating tapestry which journeys into immensely desolate landscapes … what Eugene Thacker calls the "world-without-us" … while the supracosmic entities Polia and Blastema fold back onto themselves in ever-spiraling, fractally superimposing cataclysms of wormhole network (be)longing. "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 "Like the long shriek of nature." Tom Gunning "My brain went in a thousand directions, blasted by its cosmic radiations."
