Sunday Sessions presents the North American premiere of documentary film The Show of Shows: 100 Years of Vaudeville, Circuses and Carnivals, directed by Benedikt Erlingsson (U.K., Iceland).
Benedikt Erlingsson brings us a world of imagination with a compendium of unseen archival footage of circus performers, cabaret acts, and fairground attractions. The films are set to a haunting electronic score composed by members of Sigur Rós in collaboration with Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson.
The film is presented on a loop from noon to 3:30 p.m.
The screening at 4 p.m. is followed by a conversation and Q&A with director Bendikt Erlingsson and Frédéric Boyer, Artistic Director of the Tribeca Film Festival.
This screening is presented in conjunction with The Tribeca Film Festival.
