Tool singer Maynard James Keenan gives viewers a hefty dose of springtime rumination in An Easter Story, his new short film that muses on the changing of the seasons and the symbolic hope it continues to hold. Also starring the flock of ducks that reside on Keenan's farm, the deep-thinking featurette was entirely directed, shot and narrated by the musician.
But. Tool fans expecting a rock video, take note: The film doesn't feature any loud music, nor does it contain Keenan's signature warble. Instead, it merely mulls the significance of rejuvenation, reproduction and rebirth as Keenan relates spring awakenings to the tale of a lost duck.
