"Where Even Fools Often Fear to Tread" is a short film by NYC writer / musician Adel Souto.
It was created to show how the everyday, and mundane, if seen from the right perspective, can be beautiful, awe-inspiring, or possibly psychedelic, while also believing the film showcases the fact that many of our hearts lay underground.
The rights to the desired score (Angus MacLise's "Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda") were not available to the artist, so a fitting piece by industrial act 156 was edited together for this short.
Technically, much of what makes up this film is illegal, as a large portions of 156's music involves trespassing, not to mention that one cannot film NYC subway trains, as well as tunnel infrastructure, due to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11th (hence the running time of nine minutes and eleven seconds). Still, we believe this work to be a positive, artistic endeavor.
