Transcendental Astronaut

I followed the mental obsession that I could drink like normal people, I followed that obsession to the madhouse and nearly to the grave. I built a spaceship from junk in the yard and set sail into the blackness of nothing as nothing is where everything comes from.

Transcendental Astronaut is a no-budget short film that explores addiction and mental health. The distorted narrative and dream-like imagery give it a psychedelic presence that is a perfect example of surrealism. Transcendental Astronaut utilizes symbolism and the irrationality of the cataleptic mind.

Featuring music by Colt 66 and The Husky Tusks.
