Bill Morrison: Selected Films 1996-2014

A three-disc Blu-ray set of films by innovative New York-based filmmaker Bill Morrison. 

Selected Films 1996 — 2014 includes 2002’s Decasia, which was released in cinemas in the UK to much acclaim. Morrison’s exquisite and timeless films are scored by the cream of the US avant-garde classical and jazz scenes, including Michael Gordon, David Lang, Julia Wolfe, Dave Douglas, and Bill Frisell.

Over the past twenty years, Bill Morrison has built a filmography of more than thirty striking and original works which have been presented in cinemas, museums, galleries and concert halls worldwide.

Making use of archival footage, which has often been decayed by the passing of time, Morrison explores the power of film as a medium which is evocative of memory and gives rise to a sense of collective mythology.
