The Village Detective: a song cycle

Bill Morrison, ZDA, 2021, 81'

Just off the Icelandic coast, reels of a film starring the popular Soviet-era actor Mikhail Zharov are discovered in a fishing net. Morrison combines the found film with David Lang’s original music and intertwines it with clips from Zharov’s extensive filmography to form a compound that provokes reflection on how the currents of life, history and art endure and intersect on celluloid.

The screenings are part of Movies in Motion, a European project co-funded by the EU Commission and Slovenia’s Ministry of Public Administration. In collaboration with Stazione di Topolò.

The implementation will take place in a situation-adapted format and taking into account all applicable preventive measures and instructions.
