Showers

John as he moves from man to man, bed to bed, shower to shower, searching for answers. The story is told through fragments of dialogue and a rhythmic montage of asphalt, subway trains, traffic and beautiful bodies. Isolated images resonate against the richly layered soundtrack of urban noise and electronic pop. John’s beauty and vitality, his sexual encounters and tiled showers blur with increasing speed as we plunge along with him into despair. The growing need for safety awakens restless memory and distant dreams of home.
The production design is influenced by the studio photography of George Platt Lynes. The saturated soundscape, designed by Gavin Haag, samples the clatter and hum of urban life. The original score, by award-winning Japanese composer Eiji Yoshizawa, layers voices, cold technological beats, and warm digital purrs.
