Colombian-Israeli visual artist Orly Anan reveals first look at ‘EIN SOF’ art film, a talent show from a parallel galaxy

Mexico City-based Colombian-Israeli visual artist Orly Anan has completed production on EIN SOF, the artist’s first art short, which will be shown on the film festival circuit and in art installations around the world from the end of the summer.

Anan teased a preview of EIN SOF, described as “a talent show from a parallel galaxy,” with the premiere of the film’s trailer and poster set.

Official trailer:

EIN SOF holds the meaning of being “infinite”, or literally “endless”, and in Kabbalah is understood as God before any self-manifestation in the production of any spiritual realm. Starting from the kabbalistic concept, the film project is a vision of the infinite and limitless possibilities that exist in our being to imagine altered universes and infinite characters charged with cosmic messages.

“My investigation attempts to open up our understanding of an altered reality by mixing ancient cultures with imaginary cultures,” comments Anan. “Each character brings a message. Each character has a “super power”. Each character has an exuberant talent. Therefore, EIN SOF is a channel through which unlimited possibilities are broadcast.

The idea behind EIN SOF, the infinite circus, is to recreate a classic talent show that takes place in a parallel galaxy where living things already inhabit have migrated to a more evolved state. However, these beings from the planet EIN SOF have come together to perform and display all of their wonderful attributes. This will only be the beginning of the infinites to come. Additionally, all characters have cabalistic letters and messages imprinted on their faces reflecting different emotions and superpowers across the constellation of letters.

Anan’s dual upbringing in Colombia and Israel instilled a deep curiosity for the mysticism inherent in Asian and Latin American daily traditions. Now a visual artist and creative director with a studio in the heart of Mexico City, the creator of parallel universes probes the intersection of ritual and popular culture to imagine lush scenographies that vibrate with romanticism, spirituality of objects and an intertwined consciousness. His vision is a world in itself.

“I like the idea that you can travel to the infinite cosmos if you’re immersed in manipulated space. I’m a romantic dreamer, so I guess altering reality is a need for me,” adds Anan.

The film’s soundtrack is by Colombian/Canadian artist Lido Pimienta. Evan Brown of Dreambear is the executive producer and Dreambear is the production company.
