DSTNCE "HYPNOS" (Bradley Alexander, dir.)

Hypnos is a short film / visual album about a woman caught in a state of sleep paralysis while being haunted by a past trauma that she has tried to suppress. Through this fever dream she is able to confront her past and awake anew. The film is a collaboration with musicians Melanie DeJesus & Clinton Van Arnam (DSTNCE) and features a short section of every song on their album “Hypnos”. The film was inspired by Melanie’s own experiences with sleep paralysis.
