…. When your Earth Plane feels a strong sense of pull, setting in motion an enigmatic chase thru a maze of dimensional time… sparking an orgasm into enlightenment…
Loosely based on the 2nd Law of the Universe; The Principle of Correspondence, “As Above” tells the story of The Earth Plane returning home, to find herself intuitively drawn to a presence she can’t ignore. Alone, The Earth Plane follows her instincts through a twisty windy hallway looking to connect an alluring call to her.
Ready to set the celluloid runway ablaze once again, Director/Editor Sewra G Kidane returns with her next fashion film following the success of “Proclamation Punctuation”; her 2017 award-winning homage fashion film to the exclamation point. Filmed on location in the Bronx with a 1970’s soundtrack and aesthetic, “As Above” stars leading ladies, Iman Artwell-Freeman, Lyfe Silva and Nazlah Black as The Three Planes of Existence in an otherworldly discotheque soirée!
Centerpiece starring fashions for the film feature an Anitra Michelle purple velvet crystal-studded Divinity Kimono and handmade Brass Headdress and Halo Rings designed by Lorraine West Jewelry, both created exclusively for “As Above”. Featured fashions also include vintage designs from 70’s designer Giorgio Sant’ Angelo, Lori Silverman Shoes with her signature Swarovski crystal-encrusted soles and Balmain accessories.
Cinematographer Michael Cooke returns to lens with Ms. Kidane, along with other “Proclamation Punctuation” key players, including Fashion Editor, Chandra Moore; Lead Hair/Make-Up Artist, Jey Belle and Sound Design by Cory Choy of Silver Sound Studios in NYC. The funky electronic synthesized score for “As Above” was composed entirely by LA native and DJ, Alexia Riner.
