    My first feature length collaboration with Alex Davies, Grass and Glass (75 minutes), a glacial psychedelic experience exhibiting the abstract images seen by an individual slowly dying on the floor of their home, had its digital world premiere today via the distribution platform, Sital Cinema. You can view the film in its entirety, for free of course, on Sital Cinema's youtube channel: youtu.be/ohhC5uCfHU4

    Image & Illusion

    After months of rigorous editing, I finally completed my eighth feature film, Image & Illusion (79 minutes), the first feature that I've decided to add to the Letterboxd database since 2017's The Passing of a Psychopath. If you would like to view the film, or any of my other password-protected works, please feel free to email me at elihayes93@gmail.com; I'll be sure to provide passwords. Much love to you all, and thank you sincerely for your infinite inspiration over the years -- it's assisted greatly in sustaining my determination to keep creating, no matter the obstructions or limitations.

    Edit: the film is now available
    publicly via vimeo.com/264388220

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★½

    A film made the way in which cinema is meant to be seen: so that the asshole sitting next to you, scarfing down popcorn like a rabid squirrel, actually feels like an asshole, in addition to merely being one.

    A very light romantic comedy.
    Good for a first date.
