When a friend told filmmaker Travis Low about Ralphael, “who was creating heaven, earth, and hell in a warehouse on state street,” the young filmmaker couldn’t believe something like that was happening just a mile from his home. “I was timid, and I’ll admit, a bit scared, when I went there, knocked on the big wooden front doors to the unassuming warehouse, and Ralphael greeted me and proceeded to take me down in the basement that he had burrowed down into. He took me through ‘the mouth of Sheoul,’ into ‘the watery depths of Hell,’ and on into a concrete spirit prison.”
Utilizing steel and concrete sculptures, as well as paintings on canvas, panels, and ceilings Ralphael transforms Biblical scenes as well as religious creations of his own ingenuity into astonishing images. Underground tunnels have been hollowed out to make space for hell, where narrow pathways and bridges serve as a means to traverse the groundwater bubbling up from below.
The Gospel According to Ralphael, a documentary film by Travis Low, is a 15 Bytes-sponsored project that will appear in a future edition of 15 Bytes. To make that happen, and bring the full 15 min film to our audience we need to raise $500 in production costs.
