NOTES:
Short Films comprise Passage, The Man in a Bath, Notes, Diaspora, Evidence and Anima Mundi as a live evening, one of the presentations of the Philip on Film Tour. In addition to the screenings of Evidence and Anima Mundi by Godfrey Reggio, Philip Glass invited Atom Egoyan, Peter Greenaway, Shirin Neshat and Michal Rovner to create silent short films for which he has written new musical scores to be performed live by the Philip Glass Ensemble. These four international collaborators, widely recognized as pioneers in the worlds of independent film, video, and visual art, were selected by Philip Glass in a unique reversal of the typically director-driven process of choosing music for a film. These first-time collaborators represent Philip Glass' vision of truly pioneering filmmakers at work today.

"For film, music, next to primary visual aspects like cinematography and color, is probably the most important element. Yet to those of us who are in the business of making movies, we act as if music is almost an afterthought. That, of course, is terrible. It's more than a mistake because it means that those who treat music as an afterthought have lost a powerful artistic ally."

— Philip Glass
