On Friday, August 7th, Infiniti Features offers an exclusive screening of the new music video for Eric Contractor’s infectious single, ‘Mad for the Light,’ directed by Audrey Lorea. The black-and-white video features neo-noir glamour, back-dropped by a distinct American decay: abandoned, dilapidated go-go clubs, and lonely graveyards set against a suburban terrain. Through various vignettes of aging American infrastructure, a twisted love triangle unfolds. With hypnotic images and cuts, director Audrey Lorea sought to tell a story in a less literal way.
"I wanted to create images that would feed the unconscious more than the conscious. In the new frontier of the digitized moving image, it is vital to understand the power of the symbol on the mind," says Lorea, who also performs in the video, playing one Contractor’s two love interests.
Standing alone in stark contrast to mind-numbing reality TV, and a selfie-hashtag-driven era, this engrossing otherworld begs you to enter, and become just as enveloped as its featured lovers.
“This haunting marriage of radiance and sound is a light-of-the-loving-dead film noir, starring two lovers trapped in a world of darkness they never made, both reflecting on what might have been and what could be, if only they could burn together in the heat of ecstasy like moths attracted to a flame” – Ken Fulton, “The Light Hearted Astronomer”
The video will debut at the red-carpet dance party “Rapture: Go Go Girls + Gold Guns” on Friday, August 7th 2015 at Drom, 85 Avenue A, New York, NY. The party will feature other cinematic achievements from Lorea, including scenes from her experimental-sci-fi feature film, ‘Heaven is Now.’ An illustrious night of arthouse cinema, music, dancing, go-go girls, glitter and more: this colorful, counter-culture event is not one to be missed. Be sure to mention: 'Heaven Is Now' at the front door.
