San Francisco International Film Festival - Beyond Zero: 1914-1918

The San Francisco International Film Festival has announced their 2015 lineup, and we’re honored that Beyond Zero: 1914-1918 was selected to be part of this year’s festival! The work for quartet with film features music by Aleksandra Vrebalov and film by Bill Morrison. Tickets go on sale this Friday at noon PT.

Sourcing original 35mm nitrate footage, Morrison has pieced together a unique visual exploration of World War I from footage that has never been viewed by modern audiences. The score, which Kronos performs live, was conceived by Serbian composer Aleksandra Vrebalov. Using antiwar writings, music and art created just after World War I as inspiration, Vrebalov constructed a score that speaks to the darkness, anxiety and hopes of the time. Following the performance, Kronos will discuss the commission and development of this program.
