Best known for his musical comedy, Spork, JB Ghuman Jr. has released his latest original art expression, a 30-minute film that took him nearly five years to create, kEEp scrEEming.
The film draws inspiration from Disney’s The Little Mermaid and features appearances by notable stars including Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Tammie Brown, adult film star Colton Ford, and a naked JB Ghuman, Jr.
Like his previous works, kEEp scrEEming is not intended to teach or lecture, but rather to activate minds and hearts.
“I’d describe the film as a detailed journey on how to build the Merkaba,” he says, referencing the divine light vehicle (“Mer” means Light, “Ka” means Spirit, ”Ba” means Body) that helps the enlightened connect with others also in tune with higher realms. “The mind is capable of seeing a reality outside of the one each of us live in. My hope is that the film inspires individuals to consider themselves part of a larger, greater force.”
“I’m doing what I can to lift the zeitgeist and curate work that is angled towards progression of the human species as a whole,'” he continues.
He views war, racism, sexual assault, and other disturbing topics in the news today as gifts because they help us to realize that despite their darkness, we can shine as individuals. “Once the prism perspective is activated, people will be able to use the vibrational frequency of love to travel through any emotional black hole they may encounter and ascend to a higher self,” he says.
JB wants it known that all characters that do not show their faces in kEEp scrEEming— from the ejaculation sequence to the body covered light dancers — are JB Ghuman Jr., himself. He says it’s not out of pride but rather of concern. He wants to protect everyone who participated in the film from any judgment or critique that should go on him.
JB Ghuman Jr. is best known for Spork, his dark comedy musical film that won the audience award at 2011’s Tribeca Film Festival. He has also directed music videos for EDM musicians including Luciana, Cazwell, and Double Duchess’ “Good Girl Freak Out,” that featured his good friend, Kelly Osborne.
“If one were to go through my entire catalog of work, they’d notice that my work leans toward an effort to aid, uplift and shine whatever I can,” he says.
In kEEp scrEEming he manages to dive even deeper in his storytelling, going forward and backwards, up, down, left, right and in-between for a true mind-altering experience.
