Apollo Rising

April 3rd, 2012

Apollo Rising

Laura Egan‘s evocative dreamscape, Apollo Rising is filled with the kind of imagery that pushes boundaries. Inspired by Jack Dempsey, the gentleman fighter of the Prohibition era, the film explores the dual nature within us all. Darkness and light, good vs. evil, the full scope of epic drama shot in a dreamy style that shifts between gritty reality and ethereal fantasy. Experience it for yourself – only in MDX.
