Spin Explained: On Fallen Angels, Free Will, and Fixing the World

Spin Explained: On Fallen Angels, Free Will, and Fixing the World Abstract: Spin is a short film (7 minutes) that portrays a supernatural DJ who "falls" to earth and attempts to bring harmony to a complex city scene. He does so by modifying nature in modest but mystical ways through manipulations of his turntables and mixer. The identity of the DJ is only hinted at through various symbols which can be interpreted to indicate that he is none other than one of the fallen angels mentioned in various mystical texts. However, though the film revolves around the DJ and is seen through his eyes, the film is not about the DJ but rather it is about the human condition. It is about the nature of creation and man's interactions therein. It is about the interplay between free will and providence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies Purdue University Press

Abstract

Abstract: Spin is a short film (7 minutes) that portrays a supernatural DJ who "falls" to earth and attempts to bring harmony to a complex city scene. He does so by modifying nature in modest but mystical ways through manipulations of his turntables and mixer. The identity of the DJ is only hinted at through various symbols which can be interpreted to indicate that he is none other than one of the fallen angels mentioned in various mystical texts. However, though the film revolves around the DJ and is seen through his eyes, the film is not about the DJ but rather it is about the human condition. It is about the nature of creation and man's interactions therein. It is about the interplay between free will and providence.
