Complicit is a film by Heather White and Lynn Zhang, which highlights the inhumane practices of FoxxConn – one of Apple’s source facilities. The track I produced and co-wrote, “On My Deathbed feat. Rachel Mason” is featured in the film. NYC shows are June 12th at Film Society of Lincoln Center, and June 17th at the IFC. Info
Sunday 1.00 pm at the CRRNJ terminal in Liberty State Park, John’s film is around 30 mins followed by a Q and A then a walk in the park. Includes some of Durek’s original piano music and sound design.
