SCREENING: Hamptons International Film Festival: A Thousand ThoughtsÊA Live Documentary w/ performance by The Kronos Quartet at Guild Hall
Friday, June 21, 2019 @ 8:00 pm$10 – $15
Written and Directed by Sam Green and Joe Bini. Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini team up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for a wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man and Terry Riley. As Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of the groundbreaking string quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Aleksandra Vrebalov and many others. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery on screen to craft an important record and exploration of late 20thÐ and early 21stÐcentury music. Transcending the typical live music and film event, this collaboration quickly becomes a meditation on music itselfÑthe act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.
