Experiencing Interruptions?


CYAN is a short film told in four chapters, each featuring a song from the Oakland-based Electro-Soul band The Seshen. This unique project blurs the line between music video and narrative short film. CYAN stars singer Lalin St. Juste on an introspective journey through eerie industrial labyrinths and a lonesome serene beach. She searches for answers and closure as memories of four women saturate her mind.
