A-list international artist Sir Daniel Winn will unveil his first art film, Creationas part of the 2022 Asian World Film Festival. Creation will screen on November 17 at the Directors Guild of America Theater Complex in West Hollywood, California.
Winn, whose talents seem to know no bounds, is an artist, curator and gallery owner. Winn’s works, including paintings and sculptures, have been exhibited around the world, as well as in the United States.
He calls his style “existential surrealism”. to win Explain“The style involves contrasts and counterpoints and examines the physical and spiritual dichotomy of existence. It juxtaposes the idea of universal, creative divinity with the concept of free will and self-determination by recognizing divinity as the genesis self-reliance and recognizing our responsibility for universally constructive action.
This mode of expression is at the heart of the future film, Creation.
“Creation” is about contrast,” says Winn. “In fact, its slogan is ‘Creation begins where destruction ends.’ This is an essential concept in the film. Light and dark, life and death, hot and cold, arid and lush, organic and inorganic, masculine and feminine. The dichotomies of these opposing factors and the fact that the one without the else would have no meaning is an underlying idea expressed in the film.
Directed by Angel E. Vera of veraONEproductions and produced by Emmy-winning Georges N. Chamchoum, Creation follows an artist from another realm as he enters our realm through a portal. Once here, he is inspired to shape his “creation” – sculptures of two nude forms, male and female, in bronze, lucite and stainless steel. Later, the artist returns to the desert to stand before his “Man” and “Woman” creations. The artist then returns to the portal, leaving behind his creations.
Filmed in Hollywood, Big Sur, Orange County and Joshua Tree, Creation conveys its story without dialogue, relying instead on music and semiotics. The connotation of Creation is by design left open to subjective interpretation.
Producer, Georges Chamchoum, shares: “Working with Sir Daniel is like living in his mind and heart – a kaleidoscope, a world of color, emotion and creativity in the purest sense of those attributes. ‘Creation’ is a feast for the eyes and ears. ‘Creation’ is an esoteric journey. ‘Creation’ is a unique experience that dives deep into your soul!
