"Ravishingly, achingly beautiful."--Lawrence Weschler, New York Times Magazine

"An irreverent elegy to Walt Disney's Fantasia."--Sundance Film Festival

Premiering at last year's Sundance Festival, Decasia is an eerily mesmerizing examination of creation and decay. Specifically, it draws on the power of film images (fragments of travelogues, newsreels, fiction features) as they've deteriorated over time, their distorted photographic content suggesting bizarre and inexplicable alternative meanings.

"For all its antique resources and resonances," notes New York Times critic Lawrence Weschler," Decasia is a film absolutely of the moment." With a specially commissioned symphonic score written by Bang on a Can's Michael Gordon. (70 mins.)
