The Film

"When a young lady searching for answers follows the instruction of a self-help institute offering a peculiar and psychedelic empowerment course, she wanders through rural Texas in search of solace through a “color therapy” meeting group."

Producer partners Daniel Stanush and Diego Chavez frequently collaborate on films as ambitious and articulate as the music itself, sometimes working on both at the same time. Color Field is a continuation of the narrative film series set in motion through the Innervisible prelude.
