WILD COMBINATION: A PORTRAIT OF ARTHUR RUSSELL
Plexifilm is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Wild Combination, Matt Wolf’s acclaimed documentary on seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell. Before his death from AIDS in 1992, Arthur created music that spanned both pop and the transcendent possibilities of abstract art. The film incorporates rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur’s family, friends, collaborators and admirers, including Philip Glass, Allen Ginsberg, Jens Lekman, and many more. Stay tuned for details on New York and London cinema runs, and the DVD release (loaded with rare archival bonus footage of Arthur) this fall.
Also, this, the best London on-foot-road movie ever made, by very good friends of ours…
