Crywolf’s Justin Taylor Phillips unveiled Mabúl, Shelby Parks‘ cinematographic undertaking that doubles as both the music video for “CEPHALØTUS” and part two of Phillips’ three-part film series “WIDOW”; this collection complements Justin’s amazeballs LP—widow [OBLIVIØN Pt. I]—released last March. Per his Reddit AMA, Crywolf grit his teeth and took up freediving training in order to withstand the four-plus-minute, submerged shoot.
“I’ve always wanted to make a companion film for an album, and when I finished widow [OBLIVIØN Pt. I] and saw the type of conceptual landscape it lived in, I knew it was the perfect time to start,” said Crywolf. “‘WIDOW’ is my narrative directorial debut: a three–part short film about a descent into madness and the moral dilemma faced in following conviction to its ultimate conclusion. We come in halfway through the story at the second act—the great flood.”
