SYNOPSIS

'Compelling and disturbing! Swimming symphonies of baroque beauty emerge from corrosive nitrate disintegration as rockets of annihilation demolish cathedrals of reality.' Kenneth Anger

Screens with The Colour of Love 1994. 

Bill Morrison's Decasia was created from decaying, old found footage, melded to the music of Bang on a Can's Michael Gordon, performed by the 55 piece Basel Sinfonietta. The result is a delirium of deteriorated film stock, and a masterpiece of experimental filmmaking that leaves its meaning open to interpretation.
