Director Bill Morrison, known for his enthralling collages of found footage, reconstructs a new version of D.W. Griffith’s 1910 short film The Unchanging Sea after finding a damaged copy in the nitrate vaults of the Library of Congress. The original film tells the story of a man who nearly drowns and loses his memory, leaving his wife and newborn daughter no more than mere strangers. Morrison’s version includes footage shot in Seattle in 1897, when the S.S. Willamette sailed out of Puget Sound loaded with 800 passengers and 300 horses headed for the Klondike. Michael Gordon’s sound track merges subtle rhythmic invention with incredible power embodying, in the words of The New Yorker's Alex Ross, “the fury of punk rock, the nervous brilliance of free jazz, and the intransigence of classical modernism.” (Bill Morrison, 2018, 30 minutes)

Director Bill Morrison will be available for Q & A.
