Elevated. 2009. USA. Directed by Doug Aitken, Guy Maddin, Bill Morrison, Matt Mullican, William Wegman

This collaborative event pairs the music of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang with films by artists Doug Aitken, Guy Maddin, Bill Morrison, Matt Mullican, and William Wegman. The five short films were made specifically to accompany five recent Lang compositions, which will be performed live by CONTACT Contemporary Music under the direction of Jerry Pergolesi. Elevated blurs the boundaries between film, music, and performance.

Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film.

Presented with the help of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council, and the Socan Foundation.
