Experiencing Interruptions?

Rapt Tongue

Maria lives in the woods with her eunuch companion. From a faraway place, she hears John, a lone man in an empty house, who is trying to put together a simple sentence form Revelation 22:13 (in Biblical Greek).
She begins her journey to help him put together the sentence. John creates maps of his coordinates that mysteriously appear for Maria. As she makes her way towards his house, she turns the phrase around.

Director Statement

This short film came to me in a flash last Fall. Initially, I thought it was going to be a short film about speaking in tongues, or glossolalia. As I delved deeply into the process of writing I came upon the verse from the Book of Revelation and it seemed a perfect fit for conveying the insights I had seen. This was a love affair of mine, bringing the images and the music I was hearing together. I wrote, produced and directed this film, as well as composed the music.
