Decasia

Fri, Mar 22 / 7 pm
Sat, Mar 23 / 3 pm
Directed by Bill Morrison
2002, USA, 70 min

Often compared to Stan Brakhage, filmmaker Bill Morrison created Decasia entirely from decaying old found footage, melded to the music of Bang on a Can’s Michael Gordon performed by the 55 piece Basel Sinfonietta. The result is a mesmerizing film of deteriorating film stock and a moving avant garde masterpiece.

A stunningly beautiful ode to creation and decay.
