Midnight Mind

“Hear the rain falling down – streams on the windows. Feel the clouds rolling by – grey against your midnight mind.” These are the opening lyrics to the song and music video for “Midnight Mind.” This piece was composed and performed by filmmaker and musician, Mara Katria (who likewise wrote/directed/edited the film) and features J. Jeff Ungar, with music e-mastered at Real World Studios. While the song itself is essential to the overall production, “Midnight Mind” was envisioned as an authentic story of both sound and vision – a short film which aims to convey the tragedy, struggle, and hope present in our human experience.
