FILM GUIDE RELEASE

On March 17, 1930, a crowd assembled outside Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary to witness Al Capone's transfer to Chicago, where he would stand trial. Filmmaker Bill Morrison and composer Vijay Iyer worked with a single panning shot of this event, and the accompanying soundtrack, to create this 13-minute film on the nature of spectacle.

Bill Morrison's films have been screened at festivals, museums, and concert halls worldwide, including Sundance, the Tate Modern, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. MoMA has acquired eight of his titles. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, two Bessie Awards, and an Obie Award.
