Paradise Lost? takes John Milton’s classic tale and updates it, into a story told in three parts. The short films feature Florence Pugh as Eve and Toby Sebastian as Adam, with Sean Harris as Satan and Henry Rollins providing the voice of God.
The script was devised by long-time collaborator Kirk Lake, with an original score created by another frequent collaborator, Warren Ellis (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Dirty Three).
Produced within the confines of the Barbican Estate, the three 3-minute films were made from start to finish during the 30 days of Doug Aitken’s ‘Station to Station’ project. This ‘living exhibition’ brought together leading international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance, graphic design and film.
