TWELVE DARK NOONS
Directed by Jacqueline Castel
Produced by Caleb Braaten / Sacred Bones Records 2012
Set against the backdrop of the Australian Outback, Twelve Dark Noons is a character study of a lone man, lost in an unforgiving desert terrain with nothing but a suitcase and fragments of his unraveling memory. As memories unfold and reality dissolves, the film’s scenery transforms into a psychological dreamscape haunted by a mysterious woman hidden in the dunes. Equal measure horror film, music video, and homage to the psychedelic cinema of the 1970s, Twelve Dark Noons is an experiment in existential dread.
