Often compared to Stan Brakhage, filmmaker Bill Morrison (Dawson City: Frozen Time City) created DECASIA entirely 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 mesmerizing film of deteriorating film stock, a moving avant-garde masterpiece.

“Pure poetry…The images are at once haunting, mysterious and incredibly beautiful.”  Errol Morris, filmmaker

“Bill Morrison’s extraordinarily mesmerizing ‘Decasia’ is a stunningly beautiful… ode to creation and decay.”  Shari Frilot, Sundance Film Festival
