The Babylon Theater in Berlin has invited Syndicate director Jeffrey Wengrofsky to screen four consecutive programs – Secrets of Outer Space, Secrets of Inner Space, Secrets of the Deep: Dreams on Film, with an additional screening of undisclosed films. Owing to coronavirus, a May 2, 2020 screening has been postponed until the fall or winter of 202, but a precise date has not yet been arranged.
The Syndicate of Human Image Traffickers makes documentary films that focus on tensions in the creative life between art and commerce, democracy and demagoguery, freedom and debauchery, sexiness and sexism, existentialism and inspiration, bohemianism and mores, psychedelic illumination and cosmic mumbo-jumbo, etc. Sometimes our films are available on this website for free and without commercial interruption, but they are usually off-line so that they can be screened at festivals, galleries, and other arts institutions. Our first four films were simultaneously broadcast on the blog of Coilhouse Magazine.
To date, Syndicate soundtracks have been commissioned to members of: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Cramps, The World/Inferno Friendship Society, The Mars Volta, Beaut, The Brickbats, Thompson Automatic, The Godz, The Hold Steady, Sonny Vincent, The Fungus Fire Tabernacle Choir, The Cult Heroes, and The Nixon-Mao Handshake. Our coming contraptions reel was scored by J.G. Thirlwell aka Foetus. The Syndicate collaborates with photographers like Ian Couch, Margee Challa, Janelle Rominski, Dan Efram, Arin Sangurai, and Tina Zimmer as well as illustrators like Bill Anderson and Heather Allen.
