Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts
Guest Speaker:
STEVE SMITH - Music Critic, NY Times and Music Editor, Time Out NY

Admission includes post-screening reception.

Philip Glass is one of the most prominent and prolific composers of our times. By combining meticulous technique with brilliant originality, Glass has masterfully created a catalogue of compositions that simultaneously broke boundaries and set new standards. Utilizing his talent and influence Glass leads a lifestyle that is just as inspiring as his music. In Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts, Australian director Scott Hicks (Shine) offers an illuminating introduction into the world of Philip Glass. Taking after the composers 1974 classic Music in 12 Parts, Hicks divides the documentary in 12 chapters, each serving as a portal into the past seen through the prism of the present. This format of the film sets it apart from the typical biopic. Glass stand on its own as a work of art. Since Glass was and is an avid collaborator with visual artists, performers, filmmakers, and theater directors, the documentary is largely comprised of interviews with luminaries such as Chuck Close, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, and Errol Morris. Hicks intended these interviews to become individual narratives that together form a mosaic portrait of the composer. In doing so, the film beautifully harmonizes these facets of Glass career into a cinematic polyphony of his life and work. Matthew Garklavs
