The piece, directed by Aitor Throup - was commissioned by Nowness.com especially to mark their relaunch on the 29th of September 2014. The film not only depicts an actual 3 dimensional portrait of Rapace being intricately sculpted, but also acts as a portrait of her in itself, by acting as a metaphor for the various chronological steps in the actor’s process. Flying Lotus, the highly acclaimed forward thinking musician and producer provides an exclusive soundtrack of 6 different previously unreleased material, which was born out of conversations between him and Throup at the beginning of the project.
Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life.
