MONKEY is a docufantasy, told through shadows, about two people growing close, and two people falling apart. You could say it’s an epic, a buddy movie, a family drama, or, indubitably, a downright freakfest. It takes place in Los Angeles on Christmas day, and the narrative is from the pages of Ulysses. The project at Human Resources is an exhibition of the first act of this winding, Homeric tale which chronicles the long, tender journey from loneliness to solitude.
MONKEY includes Jheanelle Brown, Nicholas Zhu, Jonny Garciamons, Femi Adeyemi and Brandon Bloom. Influences and quotations include Junot Diaz, Moodymann, Paolo Maganoli, Fran Ross, Susan Sontag, Ibn al-Haytham, Dj Funk, Colin Self, Robin James, Jace Clayton, Arthur Jafa, bell hooks, and others. Camera 2 is Nicholas Zhu. Moodymann handles the leitmotif, and Kelman Duran tracks feature prominently.
