A MoonLess Night- Forthcoming 

The cinematic reimagining of Snowapple’s surrealist cabaret: Mr. Moon, A Moonless Night combines puppetry, mime, and international styles of music to tell the story of the moon’s fall from the night sky.

 

 

The strange patrons of a bar become even stranger when the moon falls from the night sky. Confusion reigns; a business mogul’s pedantry clashes with a diva’s hypnotic lyrics, the bartender’s smile grows suspicious, and the bus boy spills every drink he touches. And all the while the moon herself wanders the unfamiliar earth, her search for balance pulling on the tide of human emotions that awaits her in the bar.

Hechizo Evil Wizard 

Empowering female composers & musicians: Banda Regional Femenil Mujeres del Viento Florido and the international artists’ collective Snowapple present: Hechizo Evil Wizard

 

Hechizo Evil Wizard is a unique combination of Snowapple’s original music and an ominous narration of an Oaxacan legend, produced by Dutch filmmaker and anthropologist Julia Hollander. The video and music were recorded in collaboration with Banda Regional Femenil Mujeres del Viento in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. In 2021 a group of traveling artists from Snowapple and Moon Cabaret arrived to the magical mountains of Tlahuitoltepec and met Las Mujeres del Viento Florido. Together, through a mystic and musical journey, they vowed the strings of art, feminism, and collective creation.
