The Pain Won’t Go Away.
The next installment from Jennifer Elster‘s brilliant and introspective film series, The Being Experience “Transparency and Punishment,” has arrived and features Paz de la Huerta (Boardwalk Empire) and Terrence Howard (The Butler, Iron Man). What I especially enjoy about this series? No one knows exactly what’s going on. The experiences evolve into something more than just speaking into a camera. It is about being alone and allowing the nature of things–mind, body and shadows–to emerge.
THE BEING EXPERIENCE is a multi-part film series that is a mystery to everyone, even its subjects. The film series embarks on a strange excursion through the woods and into the labyrinthine minds of the filmmaker and her subjects, where pathways always recede and nobody knows what’s going on.
The Being Experience errs on the side of risk: penetrating what is often unspoken and existing outside of the bounds of how we are expected to behave –a daring excursion that unabashedly delves into severe darkness along the way.
Multiple plots unfold while an underlying story is being revealed. The parameters of filmmaking are stretched to explore new ways of telling a story. On the 25th of each month a new installment will be released at The Being Experience website. Watch as each installment will advance in meaning. This is an ongoing journey, to be released on a variety of platforms which will include a series of feature films.
