DESCRIPTION

LAST DAY OF MAGIC Video is an examination of illusion as well as disillusion that magic provides in culture: the search for the intangible; the revealing of deception, the removal of what's obscuring. Magic changes the perception of reality. Last day of Magic video is a curated film screening about secrets, lies, false beliefs, melancholy, disappearance, tragedy and transgression.
