Trans- States Media
River is a writer with a story to tell. A story about who we are, things we have observed, the reality of change, and the likelihood of survival. But, with a deadline to meet, River is struggling to find the right words and zero-hour is rapidly looming.
This is a story about the nature of story itself. It is a visual poem exploring the tales we tell each other, and ourselves, about who we are. About our beginnings, our middles—and our ends.
This is Not The Story I Wanted to Tell You is an Occultural Production, in association with Trans- States Media.
In the late stages of preproduction, this short will be produced, written, and directed by Cavan McLaughlin [themushroom.net].
This film is part of Cavan’s practice-based PhD on ‘occulture’ and has been adapted for the screen from an original poem by Felix Rey. With music by Jasmine Hazel Shadrack.
