It is often said that the devil can be found at the crossroads. It is the proverbial meeting point of good and evil. The bridge between heaven and hell. The battleground that may be inside each individual’s soul. Filmmaker and animator, Plant Head, along with creature designer, Alvaro Buendia, aim to visualize this point of spiritual intersection through the choreography of crucifixion. The onslaught of turbulence, violence and gnashing teeth that follow, is directed at the viewer in a way that is confrontational and abrasive. It pressures one to introspect on the origins of this chaos. To wonder if it’s an event rooted in the backstory of a fantasy or an inner gaze at the darker territories of the human psyche itself?
