Woman Crush Wenesday: JellyWolf by Alma Har'el
" It's time to glow in the dark together"
What would it be like to have a fifth sense and how would it alter how we perceived reality? IFilm- maker Alma Har'el does a beautiful job of exploring this idea in her new short film JellyWolf, which was inspired by CHANEL Nº5 L'EAU perfume. The film stars actress's Kiersey Clemons (DOPE) and Lisa Bonet (The Cosby Show) and draws you in with its futuristic setting, neon colors and bold statement pieces like the amazing flower coat Kiersey wears in the lemon pool .
Har'el explains that JellyWolf was inspired by the political and social debate happening today as well as being inspired by Synethsesia."I was inspired by Synesthesia, a condition that gets your senses to cross paths, and my need to portray women in a new light. This is a trippy love letter to women who need to heal so they can find their voices."
JellyWolf is a "hypnotic mythological tale" about a young women who experiences smells in psychedelic "visions and visuals inspired by a feminine-spiritual coming of age story." (Paste Magazine) JellyWolf is also about history, women empowerment and beautiful relationship between smell and memory. JellyWolf is a tribute to female strength and about how our experiences connect us. Through Kiresey's experience of smell not only can she experience visions but time has become linear as she narrates her grandmothers coming of age story; while experiencing her own with Lisa Bonett acting as her spiritual guide.
