Henosis the film is a 16 min length film in 4 chapters. Written and directed by Rahi Rezvani.
The film shows the process of trying to achieve Henosis, a state of becoming one with the fundament of ultimate reality. It shows the masculine and the feminine personifications. The masculine is proud and selfish. The feminine is compasionate and loving. Within life and within every human, the two need to merge together, like darkness and light. In life, to understand your self, you need to grow the light inside of you. To understand others you need to send your light by love and compassion to them. To understand the light you need to respect the darkness. This all in order to overcome the dominance of the Ego(s) within you and to experience that beyond this, all is one.
A special thanks to the dancers Boston Gallacher and Tess Voelker. As well to the whole crew without whom this beautiful film would not have existed.
I met Rahi Rezvani by chance some years ago. Little did I know then that this encounter would result in the great collaboration we have today. It is a privilege to work with someone who manages to translate my musical world into images and stories so seamlessly. Please enjoy his beautiful film and give it a second viewing if your day allows for it. A special thank you to Meng-ke Wu and Marne van Opstal for giving us their wonderful performance and personalities! And of course to the rest of the team making over hours on this one, many many thanks!
I am very proud to present my first music video. An ode to female energy. This would not have happened without a small team including the very talented Rahi Rezvani who conceived, directed and edited this video. I hope you like it as much as I do. If you do, please share it on Facebook, Instagram or anywhere you like, so more people can see this video, as well as a thank you for the dedicated team that worked very hard on this.
