The result is a fascinating “live documentary” film and performance featuring video, Green’s live narration and an original live score composed and performed by indie-classical chamber ensemble yMusic.

This special live-documentary experience will be presented at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA this Saturday at 8:30pm.
