An online community and mystery-game inspired by Pink FloydÂs The Division Bell album has become the subject of a new documentary making its World Premiere at the Coney Island Film Festival. The soundtrack for the film ÂStonersÂ comes entirely from Pink Floyd, and the band has provided music rights for the worldwide festival circuit.
This represents the first time Pink Floyd has provided an entire album from their anthology to a film since their epic 1982 cult-classic, The Wall.
The documentary uncovers the secretive world of ÂThe StoneÂ Internet Game, an enigmatic puzzle mystery that launched in 1998. The 46-minute feature film chronicles the lives of the players, known as ÂstonersÂ, and sheds light on the Floyd-inspired connections within the mystery.
ÂStonersÂ represents a unique approach to the genre, as the documentary itself is part puzzle and leaves the audience with a sense of how mystery is built into the fabric of every StonerÂs life.
ÂWhen working on anything called ÂStonersÂ you need to be ready for the surprising occurrences that will happen to your project,Â claims Rod Bruinooge, an Aboriginal filmmaker, who co-directed Stoners with fellow Winnipeg filmmaker Scott Jaworski. ÂNeedless to say I was very pleased when Pink Floyd provided us with The Division Bell as they are notably cautious with their catalog.Â
The film uses an observational style without narration, switching between scenic locales in New York, Stonehenge, and Canada. Lighter moments in the film show Bruinooge interacting with hard-core Stoners at player-held gatherings.
Bruinooge and Jaworski are actively promoting ÂStonersÂ throughout the fall of 2004.
The Coney Island Film Festival runs from October 1st to 3rd.
