DECASIA
2002 | USA | 70min
Director: Bill Morrison
Composer: Michael Gordon

A mesmerizing tour de force, Decasia is as much about moving images as it is about the physical artefact of film. Michael Gordon’s haunting score creates an all-encompassing experience of cinematic grandeur. Not unlike our own existence, Decasia is a celebration of temporality with the ephemeral frame-by-frame resonance that translates the effects of the natural world.

The Guardian – “It has a sculpted, sensual quality, a richness of texture missing from most modern cinema… here's something dense, deep, full of unnameable spectral presences.”

Village Voice - “The film is a fierce dance of destruction. Its flame-like, roiling black-and-white inspires trembling and gratitude.”
