While You Live, Shine
A moving journey deep into the oldest music in the Western world, guided by Chris King, the award-winning musicologist who has dedicated his life to understanding and preserving it. Using his collection of 78's King, the auricular raconteur takes us to Epirus, northern Greece, to experience music that dates back to pre-Christian times, which is still played there every summer. In King's words, "the music is so unpretentious and stark that I doubt that many would even regard it as music...it is more like a profound tonic or salve for our wilted spiritual wounds."
Acclaimed Irish filmmaker Paul Duane has been making films for twenty years. In 2014, he was on Variety's annual 10 Directors to Watch list. His most recent film, What Time Is Death?, follows the return of the self-exiled band, KLF.
