Out of Our Minds
Three time periods, one connection: Blood. The 28-minute film follows the central characters, a woman and her car, in a strange ritual that climaxes in a collision between past and future, crashing through the gateway to parallel worlds in the same forest. A fantasy world where a viking heart, a car crash and a bleeding forest connect. Using music rather than dialogue, the film tells a universal tale in striking optics. Borrowed from mythology, the hunt for the heart is the eternal quest envisioned in OOOM. Conceived by musician Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole / Smashing Pumpkins) and birthed by Film-maker Tony Stone (Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America) this mini epic is self-produced and shot in HD fueled by solar power.
