Watch WWI-inspired film “Beyond Zero” for free this weekend

100 years ago at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, the hostilities between more than a dozen nations ceased and World War I came to an end. To mark this day, we share composer Aleksandra Vrebalov, filmmaker Bill Morrison and Kronos’ collaboration Beyond Zero: 1914-1918, which Morrison and Icarus Films have graciously made available to stream for free on Vimeo until 11:59PM PST on November 11. Watch now >

In 2014, Beyond Zero, a work for quartet with film, was commissioned to mark the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of World War I. “Unlike official histories, that have often romanticized and glorified the war,” writes Vrebalov, “artists have typically been the keepers of sanity, showing its brutality, destruction, and ugliness.” Learn more about the project >

Beyond Zero: 1914–1918 was supported in part by an award to the Kronos Performing Arts Association from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional funding from The MAP Fund, which is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It was commissioned by Cal Performances, University of California, Berkeley; National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial and the Harriman-Jewell Series in Kansas City, Missouri; and Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College, in Hanover, New Hampshire.
