A 15-year-old Nune creates a fantasy world to escape from the pain of social rejection and bullying. But her archenemy's girlfriend, a model cheerleader with a bleeding, heart-keeps luring her near.
Ji Strangeway, writer-director, and poet based in Los Angeles, specializes in women-centric narrative art films. As part of an unbroken lineage to pioneers in the avant-garde film movement, Strangeway's work has showcased alongside legendary experimental film artists such as Stan Brakhage at the Millennium Film Workshop in New York City.
When her narrative art film, MYSTERY'S CHOIR, premiered in the East Village, rocker Joan Jett was quoted for saying, "It's like nothing I've ever seen before!" Creating new and authentic ways to make art are Strangeway's major tenets.
I wanted to make something exhaustively beautiful. Today, there is too much violence, too much cynicism, and numbing of our senses that gives us permission to become detached passersby watching others get hurt. Whereas, sensitivity ought to be treasured. NUNE is about the permission to feel pain, to love honestly, rather than to escape from it.
