Charlotte Resounding

1998, 40 min, color, sound

Larry Miller's tribute focuses on the last years in the life of avant-garde cellist and performer Charlotte Moorman. Miller captures Moorman performing despite her illness. A remarkable segment features a 1989 performance for the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where Keith Haring fills in for an absent pianist. At the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Moorman performs Nam June Paik's "Variations on Saint Saens" and, as part of the piece, climbs into a barrel of freezing water before going back to the cello to finish the work. Charlotte Resounding is a moving tribute to a remarkable artist.

Camera/Editing: Larry Miller.
