Two American originals, jazz guitarist and composer Bill Frisell and multimedia artist Bill Morrison bring their singular artistic visions to THE GREAT FLOOD,  a 75-minute suite that reflects on the Mississippi River Flood of 1927. Frisell's poetic score and Morrison's wordless documentary fashioned out of old newsreels explore the disaster's devastating effect and the ensuing transformation of American society, culture and music. The New York Times called their evocative collaboration "a striking experiment in music and moviemaking."
