Man Ray with Sqürl scores!

RETURN TO REASON

France, United States | 1923-29/2023 | Man Ray

RETURN TO REASON film still

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Man Ray’s 1923 short film Le Retour à la raison, drone rock duo Sqürl (film director Jim Jarmusch and film producer Carter Logan) composed a new score for this silent avant-garde masterpiece—and for three other silent experimental shorts by Ray: Emak-Bakia (1926), L'Étoile de mer (1928), and Les Mystères du Château du Dé (1929). All four movies show in this program. According to Janus Films, the show’s U.S. distributor, these four works “represent a high-water mark of early European avant-garde cinema, a seminal nexus of experimental technique, surrealist narrative, and playful abstraction.” Sqürl’s scores promise to make these visually-stunning works even more beautiful, mysterious, and unforgettable. DCP. 70 min.
