Everything That Rises Must Converge is a four-channel digital film that depicts twenty-four hours in Los Angeles, weaving together documentary material and fictional scenes involving several characters. The documentary component follows four real-life performers of an adult film on their day at work, starting at home as they get out of bed and going through their entire day until they go back to home and get into bed at night. All along the way, we encounter fictional characters who appear on the set while the performers perform: an adult film director who turns trauma into art, a husband and wife in the middle of a crisis and an actress who is questioning her role.The film is to be presented as four simultaneous projections.
