Cornell Cinema is thrilled to return to Sage Chapel to present two very special free events. The first, Grass: A Nation’s Battle for Life, will feature an amazing live performance of an original improvised score by Ithaca’s own Cloud Chamber Orchestra (Robby Aceto, Peter Dodge & Chris White), who will be reprising the score originally commissioned by the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF). The second, Bill Morrison’s The Miners’ Hymns, will feature a remarkable soundtrack of an elegiac score by the Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson. In 2012, the New Yorker’s classical music critic Alex Ross named The Miners’ Hymns best film score of the year. Both events are cosponsored with the Cornell Council for the Arts and FLEFF.
