GLASS: A PORTRAIT OF PHILIP IN TWELVE PARTS Trailer
Description: Scott Hicks' GLASS: A PORTRAIT OF PHILIP IN TWELVE PARTS is a mosaic film portrait of one of the greatest, and at times controversial, artists of this era. Allowed unprecedented access to Glass' working process, family, spiritual teachers and long time collaborators, the director worked with a skeleton crew and shot the lion's share of the footage himself. The film follows the innovative composer with a casual, immediate honesty, giving viewers a singular revelation into the life of this surprising and complex man. The documentary also features performance footage of Glass' seminal collaboration with avant-guard stage director Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach), interviews with former wives JoAnne Akalaitis and Holly Critchlow, artist Chuck Close, musician Nico Muhly and film directors including Errol Morris, Godfrey Reggio and Martin Scorsese.
