Experience modern cinema and music like never before.

The evening also features Michael Gandolfi’s serene and jazzy meditation the history of the world in seven acts, a multimedia collaboration featuring the dancing animations of Jonathan Bachrach, plus short films with scores by Reena Esmail and Grawemeyer award-winning composer Michel van der Aa.
