Love this collaboration from New York punk trio Show Me The Body and Brooklyn-based filmmaker and documentary photographer Landon Yost. A meditation on themes of pain and death, “Arcanum” features a collection of scorched footage as a way of calling into question our obsession with capturing the transient moments of life. As Yost explains further:

“This piece was conceived and produced over the span of a year, made on favors and love in Brooklyn’s hardcore/punk community — Shot on negative 16mm, converted to positive, and filmed while burned during projection.”
