Anthology Film Archives


September 10 – September 12

Anthology continues its recent focus on the work of Holly Fisher with a weekend devoted to two films that contend with the legacy of the September 11 attacks: A QUESTION OF SUNLIGHT (2019) and her most recent feature film, OUT OF THE BLUE (2021), which Anthology presented virtually earlier this summer and which now makes its world theatrical premiere. Presented on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the program also highlights the unique and ongoing interconnections between Holly Fisher’s films and the music of composer Lois V Vierk. The soundtracks of both A QUESTION OF SUNLIGHT and OUT OF THE BLUE feature compositions by Vierk, with the latter incorporating the complete 20-minute Words Fail Me, a piece inspired by Vierk’s experience as an eyewitness to the fall of the twin towers.

[The weekend of September 9-12 will also feature 9/11-themed films by Charlie Ahearn & Jeff Preiss, and by Adam Baran; click here and here to see details about those programs.]
