Crowdfund This: Amir George’s “Metaphysical” Short Film ‘Decadent Asylum’

Chicago-based filmmaker, film curator for the film programming platform, Black Radical Imagination, Amir George is currently venturing on a new film project.
It’s titled “Decadent Asylum” and it aims to be as different and original than most films. Though the premise is deceiving, at first centering around the experiences of an ordinary doorman who is transported through a broken door, the film goes further beyond that simple description and will examine “the bond within us all, our relationship to the whole, a blueprint from our hearts to the sacred foundation of all things created”.
But even beyond that, George intends, with his new film, “to seek (and) explore the metaphysical realms through a narrative which creates a collective experience amongst an audience to encourage conversations around sacred science, human potential, and the art of mysticism”.
Therefore to realize his singular vision, George has just started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise $5,000 in the next ten days – from today – and he has already put together a team of visual creatives, performance and installation artists to create the visual aesthetics for the project, “with the aim of creating expressionist, cubist, and minimalist styles through a surrealist lens”.
Needless to say, if all this sounds very ambitious and if you’re curious to learn more, you can go to the film’s Indiegogo page HERE.
