About

REDCAT is proud to present a sneak peek of acclaimed director Bill Morrison’s latest work, The Village Detective: A Song Cycle, due to be released later this year. Featuring a hypnotic score by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winner David Lang, The Village Detective: A Song Cycle tells of a 1969 Soviet film found in a fisherman’s net off the coast of Iceland. The filmography of its leading actor offers a portal into a history that has endured on celluloid. From the director of Dawson City: Frozen Time, Morrison’s documentary is not to be missed.

With all of the beautiful decayed visuals that we can expect from a Morrison film, The Village Detective sees his practice evolve into something that sees the celluloid he uses as an object of interest… Fantastic.
