Fourteen year old director Tristan Bernal presents a stunning, nihilistic depiction of teenage angst and alienation in his dark, disturbing visual interpretation of the controversial Catman Cohen feature song, ZERO, the opening track in Cohen’s new CD...Confessions of a Shadow. For every teen who ever felt invisible or ignored, ZERO captures the suicidal self-loathing juxtaposed against a profound yearning to be loved, a struggle for acceptance so rarely realized by those young oddballs who our society considers to be less than “perfect.”
Moreover, ZERO stands as a poignant visual metaphor for those in our society (the unemployed....the financially bankrupt.....the uninsured sick and injured.....the hungry and homeless....and all other suffering people in crisis) who feel profoundly worthless and invisible as they maneuver through an often hostile world that typically affords dignity, status, and value only to the rich, beautiful, and smugly satisfied.
Indelible images of anguish seeped in bloody despair provide the backdrop to a haunting electronic song, ZERO, whose eerie wailing notes will reverberate in your head long after the music ends.
