Dark room. Projected film. Live music. This is one of my favorite things. Last week I had the great fortune of catching both We Have an Anchor, Jem Cohen's collaboration with Fugazi's Guy Picciotto and Dirty Three's Jim White (amongst other rockstars), and the 11-screen installation Massive Attack V Adam Curtis (the brilliant filmmaker behind The Century of the Self). The former: exquisite, meditative, patient and sublime, with the most beautiful muted colors, quiet vast landscapes and moody score. The latter: inquisitive, buzzing, paranoid and loud, with fascinating interconnected narratives and imagery from Siberian punk to CalArts to Jane Fonda to Prozac and more. Entirely different, both amazing.
