Synopsis

In this video for Zola Jesus, an eerie meeting between sleepwalker and her own televised image leads to a breakdown of dream and reality when static electricity becomes an otherworldly conductor for their psychic twin telecommunications. Both worlds then destabilize until they decay entirely, referencing old rental VHS tapes, whose images have been destroyed from repeat viewings of the most heightened cinematic moments.
