Scott Cummings: Realm of Satan (2024)


Magistra Barton, Maga Nadramia, and I were honored to attend and support Scott Cummings’ masterful first feature—a project first proposed to us 9 years ago. All good things to those who wait!

It is a challenging film, not at all a typical didactic documentary, and its approach clearly goes over the heads of some viewers. GIZMODO reviewed it and got the entire point of this fascinating work, essentially conceived to function as a visual ritual. Please read Cheryl Eddy’s succinct and perceptive review:
