River of Fundament to Premier at Brooklyn Academy of Music
Matthew Barney's new film River of Fundament will premier at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this winter. There will be a single daily screening of the 5-hour film from February 12 - 16. The film's cast includes Paul Giamatti, Ellen Burstyn, Elaine Stritch, Maggie Gyllenhaal, vocalist Joan La Barbara, model and paralympic athlete Aimee Mullins (who starred in Cremaster 3), jazz percussionist Milford Graves, and John Buffalo Mailer (son of Norman Mailer, who appeared in Cremaster 2 and whose novel Ancient Evenings provided the basis for Barney's River of Fundament).
Cremaster Fanatic got to attend a day of the River of Fundament shoot last summer. We promise, we will post more about the film shoot soon! But, in the meantime, here are a few photos. The film looks like it will be epic!
