The Great Flood

The Great Flood (Orig.) / 2013 / United States / 78 min

The Great Flood is a film-music collaboration by Bill Morrison and Bill Frisell based on, and inspired by, the catastrophic Mississippi River Flood of 1927 and the ensuing transformation of American society.





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context.

The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
