"Decasia" - Street Views Series
Screening of 'Decasia' followed by a Q&A with director Bill Morrison and architect David Gersten (The Cooper Union), moderated by Anthony Titus

"Decasia is that rare thing:  a movie with avant-garde and universal appeal"
J. Hoberman, Village Voice

FILM DESCRIPTION:
"Decasia"
(Bill Morrison, USA, 2002, 67 min.)
Creative and destructive forces collide in Morrison's stunning collage of decomposing black and white archival footage, rescued from oblivion by the filmmaker's obsessive research, and transformed into an immersive cinematic landscape.  Here, the material of film becomes the site for an excavation of cultural memory and nostalgia.  With an original score by Michael Gordon.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
Bill Morrison's films and videos have been shown in festivals, theaters, museums and concert halls worldwide, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Museum of Modern Art, Royal Festival Hall, Sundance Film Festival, Tate Modern, and Walt Disney Concert Hall. He has created films to accompany live performances of music by some of the most important composers of our time, including John Adams, Gavin Bryars, Richard Einhorn, Bill Frisell, Michael Gordon, Henryk Gorecki, David Lang, Harry Partch, Steve Reich and Julia Wolfe. Morrison is a Guggenheim fellow and has received the Alpert Award for the Arts, an NEA Creativity Grant, a Creative Capital grant, and a fellowship from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. His work with Ridge Theater has been recognized with two Bessie awards and an Obie Award.
