(... but here's a lil sneak peek 🤫)
Weight of a Soul:
Song by Mutual Benefit written for "Happy Birthday, Jimmy!" For your enjoyment, we've put the song to some Super 8 B-roll Connor recently shot.
We're ecstatic to have developed a relationship with Mutual Benefit!
The collaborative project of Jordan Lee, Mutual Benefit blends folk, psychedelic pop, & experimental recording techniques into fragile, hopeful songs that evoke Sufjan Stevens, the Microphones, & the Antlers. They hold the honor of being the first Bandcamp release to be named "Best New Music" by Pitchfork.
The Look & Inspirations:
Curated by one of our resident producers, Reid M. Nelson, here's a watchlist of films we're inspired by for HBD!
Some are visual inspirations, some are mood, and one is just striking. We're primarily building off of Bergman's "Scenes from a Marriage," Ozu's assortment of family dramas, Demme's haunted "Rachel Getting Married," & Kasi Lemmons' tapestry of memory, "Eve's Bayou."
The project is generously being brought to life by Chicago's Independent Film Alliance! This means that your donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!
