Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Filmmaker DeZ Vylenz presents a portrait of the artist as a contemporary shaman with this documentary delving into the fascinating world of acclaimed writer, graphic novelist, and performer Alan Moore. Beginning with a detailed exploration of the artist's childhood, Moore himself guides the viewer though the evolution of his career as he transforms public preconceptions about the common comic book while highlighting how spirituality, science, and society are all part of the same spectacular universe. Through careful manipulation of language, symbols, and images, Moore strives for nothing less than a complete metamorphosis of public consciousness. For anyone who has ever read his work or seen his art, this documentary offers riveting insight into the mind of the influential author who gave us The Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell.
