In September, Absent opened theatrically in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Paris. I had the pleasure of attending all four premieres. Many thanks to the Kino Moviemento in Berlin, the Tel Aviv Cinematheque, the Haifa Cinematheque, and the Collège des Bernadins in Paris, for presenting the film. The Paris premiere was a co-presentation of Yahad - In Unum.
Lastly, in September I presented, at Musikfest Berlin, a series of fine art film projections I created for a historic concert of music composed by Artur Schnabel, performed by pianist Markus Pawlik, baritone Dietrich Henschel, and the Szymanowski String Quartet. A version of the program will be repeated in Sils Maria, Switzerland, next summer.
