The Hacked Mind

A Film by Diana Frankovic

Synopsis

The Hacked Mind blurs the lines between art, spirituality, science and technology. It is a story that challenges and encourages the audience to go on an inner journey through image experience and consciousness movement. This experimental film is pointing out inevitable challenges we will face on our life’s journey. It is a journey into inner space. It is an interplay of video and sound. The Hacked Mind follows a seven chakra clearing method which is experienced internally through visualization. Here it is translated digitally outwards – from the inside to the outside. The sound follows the specific frequencies which are associated with specific chakras because we can physically feel each chakra when it is activated by its corresponding frequency. Harmonic resonance is the base of the soundtrack created for this experimental film.
