Synopsis

A hybrid of DeSade and Dali, House of Pain is a nightmare that takes place between sleep and death where the performers appear as mute hallucinations. House of Pain features a hallucinogenic blend of the domestic and perverse. Hoolboom’s unerring cinematography fascinates and fetishizes, never straying far from the surface of his subjects, converting them into dark objects of magic and transformation. They are also profound testaments of the body at its limits, filled with a harrowing dream vision whose fantastical vantages lend the body a rare grace.
