Lang says of this film, “ 'Ionais' from 'ionize' to convert or transform molecules or energy (or something like that). I must have been studying Shelley in English class--'Adonais'. In a master stroke I put the two together and voila 'Ionais'. The film was intended to impart a sense of transformation--dead souls into the celestial.” The film was made when Lang was a teenager in the late 60's. In 2011, Lasoff wrote and performed the musical score and did the digital enhancing.
