Storyline

Straight from the gates of the heavenly realm, a benevolent spirit-DJ enters our dimension with only one thing on his mind: to right the wrongs. Before long, he lands on a bustling street where he witnesses a car accident, and without delay, he opens up his metal cases to assemble his divine twin turntables to solve the problem. However, for every action, there are always consequences. Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Director Winans discovered Hayz II at a hip-hop show. Listening to Hayz motivated him to go home and write this short script. He then convinced actor friends to volunteer, enticed a couple of tough-looking guys he knew on MySpace.com to play the thugs, and hit the streets with Hayz and his tables. See more »

fate, free will, and providence
31 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

The film portrays a supernatural DJ who "falls" to earth and tries to bring harmony to a complex city scene by modifying nature in modest ways through manipulations of his turntables and mixer.

The identity of the DJ is only hinted at through various symbols which can be interpreted to indicate that he is none other than one of the fallen angels mentioned in various mystical texts.

However, though the film revolves around the DJ and is seen through his eyes, the film is not about the DJ but rather about man and his world. It is about the nature of creation and man's interactions within creation. It is about the interplay between providence an free will.

The film depicts three attempts by the "DJ" to achieve harmonious accord. In the DJ's first attempt, he displays smug confidence that the world functions according to hard-determinism. This approach is found wanting and the "DJ" is forced to refine his approach to account for various human factors, demonstrating the philosophical view that perhaps the world works according to soft-determinism. However, once again, the "DJ" finds that the human condition does not accord with such simplistic definition.

He thus realizes that he must take into a great many factors, including what amounts to all of human history; and even still he must invest himself completely, in what can only be termed "divine providence", to insure the harmonious solution to the city scene.
