Of Dionysus is about the experience of creating new life. The experimental drama film is arranged by intercutting four vignettes: Abraham returns to a familiar place to face his former employer, Michael; Mariella and Emily meet after a college class to hang out; Maria and Joseph have a big decision to make only weeks before their wedding; and a mysterious god-figure creates all life on earth.
“Scott Giameo’s Ambitious and Powerful Debut Film” Of Dionysus began principal photography in 2016, filming in Madison, Passaic & Roselle Park, NJ. Edited over and over again over the last 5 years.

After a year filled with hopelessness, low self-esteem and loneliness, Quinn retires for the night in her downtown high-rise. A software update on her phone appears and is accepted without hesitation. An update, which summons her into a dream world of antiquities and powerlessness.
