Michael Nyman is best known for his work as a soundtrack composer. Nyman’s collaboration with film Director Peter Greenway produced some of the most compelling moments of film music history and his score for Jane Campion’s The Piano sold over 3 million copies.
Less known until recently was Nyman’s work as a photographer and filmmaker. War Work: Eight Songs with Film was a commission by the “War on Screen International Film Festival” to commemorate the centenary of World War 1.
In 2016 Fidget Co-director Peter Price gave a screening of the work with introductory lecture in Malta. With Europe once again on the cusp of large scale war, Peter thought it timely to share this powerful work with a Philadelphia audience.
