"Solomon’s unique and indescribable cinema really bears comparison only with the massive Expressionist canvases of Anselm Kiefer."—Nashville Scene

Included in tonight’s program are two transfixing episodes from Phil Solomon’s ongoing series of films called the Twilight Psalms, a personal "secret" history of the 20th century with each title derived from an episode of The Twilight Zone. Among the other films screening are the elegiac companion films The Exquisite Hour (1989/1994) and Remains to Be Seen (1989/1994).
