River of Fundament

This film combines traditional modes of narrative cinema with filmed elements of performance, sculpture, and opera inspired by Norman Mailer's novel, ANCIENT EVENINGS, a hypersexual story of Egyptian gods and the seven stages of reincarnation, alongside the rise and fall of the American car industry. The film's central scene is an abstraction of Mailer's wake, set in a replica of the late author's apartment in Brooklyn Heights. Alluring and intense, this epic, multidimensional experience is a sprawling allegory of death and rebirth within the contemporary American landscape
