*The Film of Her*. 1996 USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. Courtesy of Bill Morrison

For this Modern Mondays discussion, Bill Morrison focuses on his use of archival and found footage, tracing the ideas that surfaced in some of his earliest titles (Footprints [1992], The Film of Her [1996]) and continue in his most recent work (Light Is Calling [2004], All Vows [2013], Beyond Zero: 1914–1918 [2014]). The range and diversity of his manipulation of found footage reveals his profound use of film as a metaphor for reflections on the historical and existential nature of time. Program approx. 90 min.

This film accompanies Modern Mondays and Bill Morrison: Compositions.
