78 - Alice Sara Ott & Friends: Messiaens Quatuor pour la fin du temps

This film is a synesthetic immersion created by musician and cinematographer Andrew Staples, who seeks to allow the viewer to experience Messiaen's hallucinations during the music's composition in a World War II prisoner-of-war camp. Staples uses iridescence, light projection, and layered contemporary contexts to breathe life into this emotional reading, bridging the past to our present - which seems nearer than we hoped to the darknesses of this piece's creation.
