THE POWERFUL PLAY
(DVD premiere date: 8/13/04)
2004 Mark Baranowski
B&W/Color, 88 minutes
Unrated (contains some material for mature viewers)

The Powerful Play begins with a collection of seven music videos which accompany the jazzy-funky instrumentals off Mark's 2002 CD, "The FLESH & BLOOD Show" (performed under his MARQUIS pseudonym):
CAN I HAVE A KISS?
BORN TO DIE
VICTIMS
MONEY
THE PAIN HELPS
LIVE TO CREATE
THE POWERFUL PLAY (2003 reprise)

The videos feature an assortment of his closest friends and family (such as Ryli Morgan, Tracy Ellis, Brinke Stevens and Rachelle Williams), and present Mark's own visions of love, life, lust, death, and the afterlife. "Living and Re-living The Powerful Play" is a short film that includes an in-depth interview with Mark himself, along with home video segments and behind-the-scenes footage.
