About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Tribeca Film Festival

—Chad Collins, Dread Central

About the filmmaker:

Barnaby Clay is a prolific music video director who premiered his feature narrative debut The Seeding (2024) in the Midnight section of the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. His short film credits include the fantasy horror Finkle’s Odyssey (2007), which won the Méliès d’Argent at the Fantsporto Film Festival. Clay has directed award-winning music videos for influential bands including TV On The Radio, Gnarls Barkley, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Rhianna, and Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan. He collaborated with Mick Rock and David Bowie to re-work the classic music video for “Life On Mars” as part of Vice Media and Intel’s Creators Project series, under the name Life On Mars Revisited. His collaboration with Vice Media continued when he directed the feature documentary on the legendary photographer Mick Rock, entitled Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock (2016). Among other projects, Clay was the creative director of “An Encounter With Lux Prima”, a large-scale immersive installation at the Marciano Art Foundation (now Gagosian Marciano) in Los Angeles. The 2019 project was built around the music of “Lux Prima” by Danger Mouse and Clay’s wife, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
