“Damn near unclassifiable…a potent draft of vicarious pleasure.” –LA Weekly

“Slyly ambitious…a series of music-based rites that become increasingly compelling to watch.” -Variety

Arthur Zarek, an enigmatic art school custodian, leaves behind blueprints for a system of ritual worship based on music. Seven students, including a young filmmaker, spend a month in Arthur’s sacred workshop space and embark on a collective rite of passage to gain Arthur’s inheritance. Featuring famed intellectual Cornel West-and local hero Richard Kalter as Arthur Zarek—the film was a collaboration between MICA and Princeton University, with elaborate sets created by 25 artists including the director’s father, Barry Nemett whose work is in the Main Gallery.
