American artist Matthew Barney at EYE

American artist Matthew Barney’s film River of Fundament will make its Dutch premiere at EYE film museum as a part of Holland Festival. A collaboration between Barney and American composer Jonathan Bepler, ‘the film was conceived of as a contemporary opera that combines documentary footage of three live acts performed in outdoor environments in Los Angeles, Detroit, and New York’. Loosely based on Ancient Evenings by Norman Mailer, this film is a ‘multidimensional experience’ and an ‘epic story of regeneration and rebirth’. There will be a showing at 17:00 on June 23, 24 and 25. Buy tickets at HollandFestival.nl (in Dutch) or at eyefilm.nl (in English)
