Film Screening: The Colorado

The Colorado has been hailed as one of the most profound documentaries in recent memory. This beautiful film explores the complex relationship between the Colorado River and the people who make use of it. As sonically pleasing as it is visually arresting, The Colorado boasts a score written by some of the most acclaimed composers living today, including Pulitzer Prize laureate John Luther Adams, Glenn Kotche, William Brittelle, Shara, Nova and Paola Prestini. The film features performances by the Grammy Award – winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, percussionist Glenn Kotche, and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler with narration by Academy Award-winning actor Mark Rylance.

PITT ARTS is pleased to bring the screening of the film, The Colorado to the University of Pittsburgh. The film will be introduced by one of the composers on the score of the film, William Brittelle; the Director and Cinematographer of the film, Murat Eyuboglu; and co-author of the screenplay, Bill deBuys. After the film, there will be a Q&A session with the artists and  the audience.

PITT ARTS is sponsoring the film and bringing the artists to campus. The following are University of Pittsburgh co-sponsors of the film screening: The Department of Music, The Film Studies Program, The Global Studies Center, and The Office of Sustainability. PITT ARTS extends their gratitude to National Sawdust, producer of the film The Colorado and for providing their artists to our campus.
