Filmmaker and artist Bill Morrison’s astonishing and generous oeuvre is characterised by his cunning appropriation of footage recovered and rediscovered from archives around the world, often scored by distinguished composers and musicians. This selection of four works showcases the depth and range of an artist Variety dubbed as "one of the most adventurous American filmmakers."
