Williams, who currently stars on Broadway in the Tupac-inspired musical, Holler If You Hear Me, joins his wife, Anisia Uzeyman to present an innovative new digital movie titled Dreamstates.
Here’s the full synopsis:
“Equal parts love story, road movie, and Americana, it tells the haunting tale of two wayward souls (Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman) discovering their love for one another in their dreams and reality while touring the United States with some of the most pivotal figures of the Afro-Punk movement.
Filmed within the enclosed spaces, crowds, and the vast and varying landscapes of 32 contemporary American states using two iPhones…the film paints a portrait of modern-day America that is simultaneously sultry, sensual, and quixotic – all from the unique perspective of an outsider whose burgeoning love for another human soul is intertwined with a burgeoning love for the soul of a country.”
The film, written and directed by Uzeyman, was shot entirely on two iPhones. It will be a directorial debut for the actress who starred in films like Aujourd’hui @ The Nest. Of course, Saul Williams who broke into fame through his lead role in the spoken word cult flick, Slam, provides the original soundtrack.
