When Jordan Thomas Mitchell found himself living in Beijing for six years producing high-concept work centered on fictionalized music and performance – think Ziggy Stardust but less glam – he eventually decided to push those performances to the next level by turning one of those projects into a film. Native Vision
, the result of that project, follows an artist’s interactions with a loosely formed “cult” in Beijing, and is intended to be a participatory shamanistic experience. Jean Baptiste, the main character of the film, greets the audience and invites them to participate in the ritual consumption of the film’s signature drink, Earth Eater, a blend of tequila, champagne and smoked plum juice. While the trip may not be as hallucinatory as your average ayahuasca binge, the elimination of any barriers between reality and fiction is sure to give your doors of perception a good squeegeeing. Check out the trailer below.
