The third annual FESTIVUS Film Festival is coming up January 14-17, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.
A collaboration between composer Edgar Barroso, designer Yen-Ting Cho, filmmaker Aryo Danusiri, Kapsis is a 7 to 10 minute piece for flute, electro-acoustic music, and video art, which will be part of a multimedia operetta. It portraits the mesmerizing Nahua myth of a young girl who becomes a starfish. The goal is to represent the unrepresented, to provide though structured musical figuration an understanding of invisible forces and principles that regulated not only the myths and riddles nut a new narrative discourse.
This work was possible thanks to the support of the FILM STUDY CENTER AT HARVARD.
