MDVL: 1,000 YEARS OF DARK AGES
Adam Green is an artistic polymath – a songwriter, filmmaker, visual artist, and poet. A co-founder of The Moldy Peaches and author of ten solo albums, his songs have been performed by artists as diverse as The Libertines, Carla Bruni, Kelly Willis, Dean & Britta, and Will Oldham. Green’s paintings and sculptures have been the subject of exhibitions in America, Asia and Europe, including a 2016 show at the Fondation Beyeler Museum in Basel, Switzerland. He wrote and directed the feature film The Wrong Ferarri (2010), the first feature film shot entirely on an iPhone, and Adam Green’s Aladdin (2016) which Buzzfeed.com described as “the trippiest movie ever made.” In 2019, Green released War and Paradise, a graphic novel combining his lyrical and visual vocabulary. The satirical war epic is about the clash of humans with machines, the meeting of spirituality with singularity, and the bidirectional relationship between life and the afterlife. http://adamgreen.info/ Portraits by Alexander Thompson.
MDVL: 1,000 Years of Dark Ages is an epic poem movie, written, illustrated, and narrated by artist/musician Adam Green and directed by animator Tom Bayne. The surrealist epic poem is about AI, corporate communism, the hard drive of the universe, the phreaker wizard merlin, a plant orgy, mandatory corneal implants, a crusade to silicon valley, and the future world becoming medieval again.
