Brent Green and Sam Green: Live Cinema
Dec 7—Dec 10, 2016
 
Film | Music
 
 

One makes narrative shorts. One makes documentaries. And they aren’t related. Self-taught animator Brent Green and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground)—who have showcased their work at MoMA, the Whitney Biennial, and all the major film festivals—burst the bounds of cinema by pairing live music and narration with their singular films. In this showcase of their best work to date, Foley sound artist Kate Ryan and a band comprising Brendan Canty (Fugazi), James Canty (Nation of Ulysses), and Becky Foon (Silver Mt. Zion) perform live alongside the cinematic proceedings: flickering stop-motion forays into Southern Gothic from Brent, engrossing documentaries about provincial dreamers and doers from Sam.
