Visual Music

A six day series at the Northwest Film Forum takes a loving look at the long and complex relationship between recorded music and motion pictures. The "Visual Music" series pays special attention to the iconoclastic artists working in film from the 1920's through the 1970's who pioneered concepts, techniques and technologies which have retained a surprising strength to surprise and inspire, and have proven profoundly influential to today's sound-and-image culture. It's a rare opportunity to see restored film prints by genius animators like Oskar Fischinger, Mary Ellen Bute, Jordan Belson and Robert Breer on the big screen.

The series opens this Friday, April 9, and runs through Wednesday the 14th. The full schedule, including extensive information about the films, is available right here.
