Once Within A Time
For the third time executive producer Steven Soderbergh, composer Philip Glass, and filmmakers Godfrey Reggio and Jon Kane are partnering to create a new feature film. This time theater director Robert Wilson joins the collaboration as art director for Once Within a Time— a work of sound, vision, and stagecraft about the hope for mankind to resist destiny in the face of climate change.
Once Within a Time is an anarchic comedy told without words, a sensory feast to be felt through art and music. This multidisciplinary work shows us life on Earth as humanity clashes with the five fundamental elements—earth, air, water, fire, and money— headed towards a critical moment of choice between annihilation and redemption.
To launch the project, opticnerve™ collaborated with renowned designer Stefan Bucher to produce a unique and award-winning concept book. The book is three individual volumes bound together in a trifold hardcover, resulting in a stunning flipbook similar to those found on a child’s bookshelf.
