Adam Green “Me From Far Away”

Adam Green created a hyper-sensory, poetic, and humorously subversive take on the classic Arabian Nights tale, Aladdin which was written and directed by Green himself. The movie features a brand new soundtrack album composed and recorded by Green, which today features a new video for the track Me From Far Away.

 

In addition, Green has also announced a combination movie and concert tour of North America and Europe – the full-length film will be screened before all concerts! The new video is comprised of tour and concert footage if you’d like to see what the experience is like.
The film is a modern day version of Aladdin, with Green starring as the titular character, and explores the recesses of Green’s symbolic imagination wherein the lamp is a 3-D printer, the princess is a decadent socialite, the planet gets a sex-change and its population prints out an analog version of the Internet.

With Aladdin, I wanted to create a single and unified experience to showcase my music, art, and writing,” said Adam Green. “When creating Aladdin, I approached the script like it was a song. It has been the creative journey of a lifetime, and I’m so excited to put this out!

Aladdin is out today in the U.S. and Canada and May 12th WORLDWIDE and will be available via iTUNES and AMAZON VIDEO-ON-DEMAND as well as through AdamGreensAladdin.com. You can also watch the 15-min behind the scenes documentary here.

About Naomi (824 Articles)
Most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook: @youthquakermimi
