In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life -- Open Call for Submissions
Drugs have been used to access the spiritual dimensions of existence in many cultures since the dawn of civilization. Artists have likewise sought to escape the confines of the rational mind through the use of substances that expand the senses, alter perception, and suspend the repression of the conscious mind. And others, eager to subvert the conventions of prevailing cultures, have hoped to achieve liberation and even enlightenment by modifying how they think. In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life will explore the heights and depths of consciousness to reveal truths inaccessible to the sober.
In Vino Veritas: Secrets of the Intoxicated Life is seeking submissions of short films (five to ten minutes in duration) about how getting wasted can elevate the spirit, enhance our creativity, make us wiser, deliver us onto freedom or otherwise improve the human condition. All formats - documentary, experimental, animation, and narrative film – will definitely be considered.
About the Secrets series: Believing that cinema allows us to see what they eye cannot, the Secrets series aims at divulging mysteries. This will be the third installment of the Secrets series. The first, Secrets of the Deep: Dreams on Film, premiered at Not-a-Luncheonette (Brooklyn) in June 2014, with five participating directors: Alice Cohen, Bradley Eros, Leslie Hodgkins, Joel Schlemowitz, and Jeffrey Wengrofsky. The second, Secrets of the Insect World, premiered at the Gene Frankel Theatre (24 Bond Street, Manhattan) with eight directors: MV Carbon, Bradley Eros, Jeff Frumess, Art Jones, Irene Moon, Lary Seven, Jeffrey Wengrofsky, and Mike Wilson.
