In Greek Mythology, when one passes from the world of the living to the world of the dead, one must cross the river Acheron. Eternally, waiting at the waters edge to ferry the dead,  the boatman, Charon waits for us all.

In “Until The Quiet Comes,” a stunning new short film (in advance of the forthcoming LP of the same name,) LA’s one and only Flying Lotus  sits quietly in an idling, hydraulically tweaked ’65 Chevy, as the Charon of the Nickerson Gardens housing project in Watts.

I would be doing a terrible disservice to you and the film to make any attempt at describing the stunningly horrific beauty of filmmaker Kahlil Joseph’s new work.

In an email exchange, Tom Schnabel called it, “a very impressionistic film…beautiful juxtaposition of surreal floating in a crystal sea against the hard edges of Nickerson Gardens and ghetto life.” See for yourself.

    Thanks for your article. I would also love to say that a health insurance dealer also utilizes the benefit of the coordinators of any group insurance policy. The health insurance agent is given a list of benefits desired by someone or a group coordinator. What any broker really does is seek out individuals as well as coordinators which usually best match those demands. Then he gifts his ideas and if both parties agree, the particular broker formulates a binding agreement between the two parties.
