Event description: Bill Morrison has reinvented the lost art of the silent film - often using decaying footage from old silent movies but also creating his own luminous, evocative world out of new images and new music. This series looks at a selection of Morrison's major works, all done in collaboration with some of the finest new-music composers.

This film, "The Miners' Hymns," is shown with live orchestral accompaniment and features a riveting, brass-heavy score by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, played by the Wordless Music Orchestra.
