Set in New York City and narrating the construction of the Chrysler Building, which is itself a character: the host to inner, antagonistic forces at play for access to the process of (spiritual) transcendence. These forces take form in the struggle between Hiram Abiff or the Architect (played by Richard Serra), and the Entered Apprentice (played by Barney), who are both working on the building while reenacting scenes from Masonic mythology. The film pauses midway for a choric interlude which rehearses the initiation rites of the Masonic fraternity through allegorical representations of the five-part Cremaster Cycle, all staged in the Guggenheim Museum. Features Aimee Mullins as the Entered Novitiate.
