Preview “Re:Awakenings” film by Bill Morrison

Recently a box containing seventeen reels of super-8 footage captured by Oliver Sacks from the 1969-70 period during which he worked with the remarkable “human statues” at Beth Abraham Hospital in the Bronx. New York Live Arts commissioned filmmaker Bill Morrison to fashion a brief lyric distillation of the Sacks trove. The resultant short film will be shown as part of each of the Re:Awakenings theater and music events. Morrison will also discuss the making of the film on April 19th at 6pm.

The excerpt and images below provide a preview of the film.
