5) Flux is playing the opening screening of the Spring 2022 New Jersey Film Festival! – Cléa van der Grijn’s Flux is an experimental short film screening Friday, January 28, 2022 at the New Jersey Film Festival. The film explores themes of death, loss, and the self-reflection that naturally occurs when one is isolated. The background music is in the style of sean-nós, a traditional Irish a cappella style usually performed in Irish. These musical choices brought Cléa van der Grijn’s Irish heritage to the film and contributed to its ghostly nature; The Sean-nós’ slow and controlled vocals added an element of darkness and spirituality that draws the viewer’s attention. Cléa van der Grijn has said that she tries to understand the culture of death and loss through her art and that is definitely reflected in Flux.
