THE REVENGE OF THE DEAD INDIANS:
In Memoriam John Cage
a composed film
A Benefit for Other Minds
Our screening on Monday, June 15, 2009, at Kabuki Cinemas in San Francisco was a sold out smash hit.
You can order the DVD at a special price of $20 ($26.99 at Amazon) here.
This celebration of John Cage's work, influences, and thoughts is neither a feature film nor a documentary: footage of Cage and performances of his music are assembled together with 42 personalities, from well-known artists to market vendors and street cleaners, "found" video and audio landscapes, and theatrically directed readings. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints, and opinions.
This one-time film screening, a benefit for Other Minds, includes complimentary beverages and hors d'oeuvres and a chance to hear well-known figures such as Noam Chomsky, Merce Cunningham, Frank Gehry, Ellsworth Kelly, Yoko Ono, and Frank Zappa, pay tribute to John Cage.
Directed by Henning Lohner
