Low Movie (How to Quit Smoking) by Phil Harder (US, 2013, 70 min.). For twenty years, the indie rock group Low and director Phil Harder have made music videos together. Low bucked rock protocol by turning their volume down and the haunting visuals supplied by Harder helped define their minimalist approach. For Low Movie, Harder went back into the vaults and reassembled all of his 16mm negatives, including outtakes, and new material mixed with old, much of which has never been seen by anyone, including the band.
Fresh off a tour with Low opener Thalia Zedek Band, David Michael Curry will play a set of Low covers and Low-inspired improv songs before the screening.
