Space Between (2019)
Directed, Produced, and Edited by ZZ Satriani.
• “Space Between” is an experimental short film based on Sammy Hagar & The Circle’s concept album of the same name. The movie follows the main character, John, through a gluttonous and greed-filled arc of his life where newly inherited money consumes him as he chases an endless circle of drugs, gambling and parties. After bottoming out, he must make a choice to go back to that lifestyle or confront his own demons and begin a path toward enlightenment and truth.
