The Collaborative Work of Emily Esperanza, Greg Stephen Reigh, and Abby Young

 

Called “…An original voice in a sea of mundane posers,” (Amy Davis, Terminal USA [1993], PIG DEATH MACHINE [2013]), Emily Esperanza, in collaboration with Abby Young and Greg Stephen Reigh, presents a series of hypnogogic short films and videos that exist somewhere between dreamscape and hallucination, sensuality and vice, birthed from a shared love of travel, improvisation, on-location shooting, risk taking, and rule breaking. The program includes two new pieces collectively made by Esperanza, Reigh, and Young, as well as a first look of a scene from Esperanza’s upcoming feature, EL CULTO DE LA MUERTE (CULT OF THE DEAD), shot in Oaxaca, Mexico in fall 2014.
