Decasia

Bill Morrison / US, 2002 / 70 min.

An intoxicating montage of film clips from the silent era teeming with daredevils, religious zealots, athletes and explorers. The footage has been affected by mould and other forms of decay, which has a hypnotizing effect. Michael ‘Bang on a Can’ Gordon wrote the overwhelming modern music score.
