What Director Jeronimo has to say about (|||) ...
"What began as a school project several years ago has led me on one of the longest, most epic adventures I could have ever dreamed of experiencing. I had always had a deep curiosity of Rave culture after witnessing a close friend become entirely transformed after attending an “underground” party. With a strong background in science fiction, I began this documentary as a fictional piece and through my initial research discovered the information I was “making up” about rave culture was actually true. Since this discovery I have dedicated my educational career to researching the metaphysical and mystical dimensions of electronic dance music culture."
"When I began my field research I discovered a new mythology and collective mysticism permeated this nascent global culture and offered a remarkable opportunity for observing the nature of the collective human imagination. What I discovered on the dance floor at these events changed my life as it has so many others. It was altogether inspiring for me to discover a culture based on this self-altering principle that is triggered by an experience that has been practiced by shamans since the beginning of human history. I hope that the inspiration and passion I received from my experience with this culture will prevail through this film, and that I may offer as much of the beauty of that ‘moment of oneness’ we all have in the music to those who have yet to experience it."
