Harrigan wrote and directed the immersive horror film STRANGE FACTORIES which toured the oldest independent cinemas in the UK as a live cinematic event as featured in Filmmaker Magazine and Wired Magazine and written about in ‘The Modern British Horror’ by Dr. Steven Gerrard, Rutgers University Press (2018).
In 2019 he was awarded Best Director at the Brighton Rocks Film Festival and Best Storytelling at the First Hermetic Film Festival in Venice for his second feature ARMAGEDDON GOSPELS.
In his spare time he teaches meditation and lectures in storytelling, drama, ritual and creativity for organizations such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Royal College of Art and The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
His third feature LIGHTSHIPS is currently submitting to film festivals.
He seeks peace and equilibrium, but finds it hard to locate in a house filled with five cats and three children.
John chats with Dean and Jenn about his film, and his use of art as a transformative, magical process. The fascinating conversation also examines the work of Maryann Rada and the experiences of other UFO contactees, Enochian angelic communications, the imaginal realm, the nature of reality, and more.
