A unique "oratorio for moving image and sound," and a dramatic meditation on the very act of seeing. This extraordinarily powerful film sets the music of Arvo Pärt's Passio--which has been called one of the last masterpieces of 20th Century music--against images carefully chosen from the billions created during the tumultuous century since moving image media first appeared. Its declared ambition is to manifest the neglected or repressed memory of the human race during this era. We are proud to have the honor of presenting the North American Premiere of this unforgettable event, and especially happy--since Pärt's music is itself an interpretation of the Gospel of St. John--to arrange for our initial three screenings with live music to be in New York City's magnificent Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. |Read More
