Dir. Jem Cohen collaborates with musicians from Fugazi, GYBE & more on this homage to Cape Breton
Part of the Next Wave Festival, award-winning filmmaker Jem Cohen enlists the help of esteemed musicians from Fugazi, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Dirty Three for his latest meditation, We Have An Anchor. Combining footage shot in Nova Scotia's Cape Breton over the last decade with an epic live soundtrack and texts, Cohen creates a multi-medium portrait of a place he asserts is one of the most beautiful and authentic he's ever been. Premiered at EMPAC in Troy, NY last year, this cinematic love letter, which only has a three-night run, is sure to wow audiences at BAM. Don't let this one sail without you.
