    2010. USA/Armenia. Directed by Braden King. With Ben Foster, Lubna Azabal. Live score by Michael Krassner and the Boxhead Ensemble. Projections by Deborah Johnson. An exclusive MoMA event, presented in association with Pomegranate Arts and Creative Capital, HERE [ THE STORY SLEEPS ] is a one-night-only performance of an emerging collaboration between the award-winning filmmaker Braden King (Dutch Harbor, Sonic Youth: Do You Believe in Rapture?), the composer Michael Krassner, and the critically acclaimed Boxhead Ensemble. At its core, HERE [ THE STORY SLEEPS ] is a deconstruction of King's forthcoming feature film HERE, a landscape-obsessed road-movie romance starring Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma, The Messenger) and Lubna Azabal (Paradise Now, Exiles). Cowritten by the Melbourne-based writer Dani Valent, and the first American feature film to be shot in the ex-Soviet republic of Armenia, HERE chronicles a brief but intense relationship between an American satellite-mapping engineer (Foster) and an expatriate Armenian art photographer (Azabal). A hybrid film-concert that explores the dream life of cinematic narrative, HERE is sure to be both visually and aurally mesmerizing. This project was supported, in part, by a 2005 Creative Capital grant. Approx. 70 min.
