ABOUT THE FILM

“Swarm Raid” is a surreal trip to the grocery store inspired by an army ant swarm raid. Directed by Anna Lindemann and Ryan Glista, with music by Anna Lindemann, lyrics by Emma Komlos-Hrobsky, and musical performance by soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, “Swarm Raid” features more than fifty dancers. The music video is also part of the evening-length art-science performance The Colony.

“Swarm Raid” was made possible through the generous support of the UConn School of Fine Arts Dean’s Grant, UConn School of Fine Arts Project Completion Grant, the UConn Department of Digital Media & Design, and the UConn Office of the Provost AntU Academic Plan.
