Introduced by Bill Morrison

Dir. Bill Morrison. 2002, 70 mins. 35mm. Described as a “delirium of deteriorated film stock,” Bill Morrison’s enthralling Decasia is a collage of decomposing found movie footage with an original score by Michael Gordon of Bang on a Can. Avant-garde pioneer Kenneth Anger wrote in appreciation, “Compelling and disturbing! Swimming symphonies of baroque beauty emerge from corrosive nitrate disintegration as rockets of annihilation demolish cathedrals of reality.”
