Interview with filmmaker Meredith Monk.
Book of days
|Responsibility:||the House Foundation for the Arts presents.|
Book of days: "'Book of days' takes place primarily in the Middle Ages, but the characters and their concerns are deeply familiar. Monk draws parallels between this age of war, plague and fear of the Apocalypse, with our modern times of racial and religious conflicts, AIDS, and the fear of nuclear annihilation. 'Book of days' has a mythic quality, a sense of displacement; it encourages the viewer to ponder the ultimate fragility of the human experience"--Container.
