ALL:EXPANDED'S "PROVIDENCE" IS A SHORT FILM TELLING THE STORY OF THREE INDIVIDUALS BONDED BY A SHARED SUPERNATURAL ABILITY. FEATURING AN ORIGINAL SCORE BY DUTCH MUSIC PRODUCERS ILLUMINATI AMS AND WARDROBE BY 3.1 PHILLP LIM, THE PROJECT BLENDS MUSIC, FASHION AND FILM, INTO AN ABSTRACT, ENLIGHTENING NARRATIVE.
Saturday marked the official premiere of "Providence," which screened at the SoHo Grand before a release party. The event was well attended—A$AP Mob, who have ties with the producers of the film's score, Illuminati AMS, can usually attract a fair-sized crowd of New York night life lovers. And by the way, you did not read right: Illuminati AMS aren't involved with that illuminati... or at least, that's what Duncan Winecoff of All:Expanded tells us. They "derived their name from the literal meaning of Illuminati, 'the enlightened ones.' They are in no way affiliated with any conspiracy theories." Oh, really? Yeah, apparently, the Illuminati viral videos we can't help but be aware of over here aren't as big in the Netherlands, Winecoff assures us.
But wait, what about the symbolism we're seeing in the film? Are the members of All:Expanded, themselves, members? "The triangle with the eye in it represents the eye of providence, hence the name of the film. 'Providence' itself means 'divine foresight' and plays on the idea of being able to feel things before they happen." Well... okay. Whatever it's about, the fire effects are rad.
Today (November 25th) marks the official online debut of the film, and we're proud to exclusively premiere it here on VMAN.com. May it grant you divine foresight.
