The Being Experience

The series then embarks on a strange excursion into the labyrinthine minds of the filmmaker and her subjects where pathways always seem to recede. The parameters of filmmaking are stretched to explore new ways of telling a story. ...IN THE WOODS (AND ELSEWHERE), a part of The Being Experience, errs on the side of risk and penetrates what is often unspokenThe series exposes the complexities of existence and reveals the essence of the subjects. 

The precursors have been disengaged. The distribution platform for season one of …In the Woods (and Elsewhere) will be announced on this site.

Different people stop by. It's peculiar.



"So much to end up here. For over a decade I have obsessively filmed subjects, examining existence, and exploring crevices in the psychological underground. I return, in all instances, to a compulsion to penetrate depth while playing with the boundaries of filmmaking, and at times with a brave and daring CAST. Getting lost in a complex mental state was part of the way. Instability had come into my frame many times, as did joy. The results are an unabashed look at the wilderness of getting through... and whatever else. The post-production on the film series has been a deep and nutritional experience.

I have been exhibiting and performing art at different venues in New York City and finished the recording of an album.

I also hand sculpt leather accessories which have become the J. ELSTER collection.

Announcements for upcoming gallery events and world premieres of films, behind-the-scenes material, and inside information, will be delivered to your inbox. So sign up. I will never share your email or information with anyone." - Jennifer Elster
