WHERE IS THE BLACK BEAST? is Simon Lee and Algis Kizys’s film interpretation of Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow by Ted Hughes. The film opens with a reading of Lineage, when Crow is born, a memorable mythic entrance.

Screaming for Blood

Grubs, crusts


Trembling featherless elbows in the nest’s filth

Lee pieces together hundreds of abandoned photographs into a film driven by Hughes’ epic cycle of poems. Kizys’compositions guide the piece, with original scores written for each reader: Nesbitt Blaisdell, Carla Bozulich, Julie Spodeck, Flaminia Genari, Eve Sussman, Simon Lee and Algis Kizys. There will be a brief Q&A with the filmmakers following the screening.
