Films & Other Videos

Films with: Monk, Meredith

Ellis Island Book of days /
Ellis Island: "A film about the experiences of immigrants entering America at the turn of the century, 'Ellis Island' was one of the last films shot on location before Ellis Island was restored. Neither documentary nor fiction, Monk describes the non-verbal 'Ellis Island' as a 'ghost story told through the musicality of images'"--Container. Book of days: "'Book of days' takes place primarily in the Middle Ages, but the characters and their concerns are deeply familiar. Monk draws parallels between this age of war, plague and fear of the Apocalypse, with our modern times of racial and religious conflicts, AIDS, and the fear of nuclear annihilation. 'Book of days' has a mythic quality, a sense of displacement; it encourages the viewer to ponder the ultimate fragility of the human experience"--Container. Interview with filmmaker Meredith Monk: Meredith Monk discusses with interviewer John Killacky the general principles and inspiration for her film work, Ellis Island, and Book of days.

Meredith Monk inner voice /
"Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer and creator of new opera, music theater, films and installations. She has been proclaimed as a 'magician of the voice' and 'one of America's coolest composers.' During a career that spans more than 45 years, Monk has been hailed by audiences and critics as a major creative force in the performing arts. Inner voice celebrates Monk's life and work, and illuminates the role that Buddhism has had in her artistic practice. Using a wealth of resource material including personal archives, film clips of performances, and interviews with her collaborators, as well as conversations with the multi-talented artist herself, director Babeth M. Vanloo articulates Monk's extraordinary drive to live for, and through, artistic expression."--Publisher website.
