The Healing Power of Music

It has been a long accepted article of faith that music can transcend time and space and jog the mind to realizations and awakenings. Music therapy has become one of tools used by professionals to treat those with memory loss due to disease, braiin tumors or simply old age. The power of music to heal is at the core of the new American indie film THE MUSIC NEVER STOPPED, the directorial debut of producer-turned-director Jim Kohlberg. The film made its local premiere last Thursday as a special scr...

Viennale t o pay tribute to Bob Dylan

Masked and Anonymous – Bob Dylan and the Cinema Curated by Cyril Neyrat Bob Dylan and the cinema: to all the world, this means two central images from the singer’s mythology. First of all, the rising young star filmed by D.A. Pennebaker in Dont Look Back (1967). And then, in Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973), the taciturn cowboy flaunting his mystery in a moribund Wild West. But Dylan’s relationship with the cinema goes far beyond these two iconic images. As I’m Not There, Todd Haynes...
