ESSENTIAL CINEMAUnited States of America, Japan
An improvisational experimental pilgrimage through the film works of American artists Harry Smith and Wallace Berman.
The quartet will provide the voice for the motion images of important artistic figures of the 20th century American cultural history. Smith and Berman’s modern interdisciplinary approach marked the world of “beat generation” and bebop, leaving the opus that entered the both spheres with great engagement.
