MYSTERY'S CHOIR (1999, Re-released 2009)"I wish that more films felt as intensely personal as Mystery’s Choir, a daring often surreal-looking work"
- Time Out New York, Film Review
MYSTERY'S CHOIR 1999 (re-released 2009) is an avant-garde film about 15-year-old teenager Daena, lost in love with a much older lesbian woman. Caught in a magical and sexually-charged relationship, she runs away from a broken home to find the outside world is no better. Daena awakens from an inner dream and sleepwalks into a world where the harsh reality of life -- when bereft of love -- is unreal.
With little to no artifice: Mystery's Choir is Ji Strangeway's first low-budget feature. Experimental and avant garde, Mystery's Choir stylistically mixes conventional narrative storytelling with abstract dreamscape imagery.
WE COME (FROM OTHER WORLDS)If heaven could come, it would be from other worlds. Cowboy Burn comes from a sexless heaven. Man and Woman have not yet separated. We live in Mono. Stereo hasn't been invented. She has no rules, no right or wrong and descends to earth; must have sex now before she detonates. She can't be divided. Sex is union. It always has been. We come as one. Pushing the envelope of art cinema and erotica, WE COME' is a no holds barred film short challenging sexual and social norms, by Ji Strangeway.
