Black Lodge is a bold new operatic film. It seamlessly blends poetry and music into a powerful cinematic experience.” — Phillip Glass

Black Lodge melds dance, industrial rock, classical string quartet and opera with the works of William S. Burroughs in a surrealistic and visceral exploration of memories and the pain they can bring.

Composer David T. Little, poet and librettist Anne Waldman and Grammy-nominated musician Timur weave the tale of a tormented writer who must make his way through a nightmarish Bardo and confront his past, particularly how it relates to a mysterious woman at the forefront of his memories. This multimedia Lynchian journey serves as a visual and sonic escape room, inviting audiences to embark on the writer’s volatile journey for relief.
