Treeman - Illusion of control
April 7th, 2019
- DVD, pro-printed covers, jewel-case
A rare look into the life and works of the mysterious shaman of the eastern woods of Oslo, Treeman. Hiking in a thick aerosol fog on endless subway-tracks through, under and beyond the city, conducting his obscure magic.
"Illusion of Control" is a retrospective movie, a collection of lots of previously short movies only shown in private shows, combined with never shown footage. All perfectly cut together into a new movie for the first time on DVD.
A psychedelic mix of ancient looking newsreel, artfilm and meditation on endstations. With its fragmented gaze on the city and rough pace this movie is defying categories and is to us the visual equivalent of the perfect noisy, filthy but triumphant drone record. We at Records of the Fleshgod are very proud to have this as our first movie release, as it stands out as a unique document of both the city and into the realm of the obscure shaman Treeman.
