Merge Records presents Greaves' documentary at Full Frame

We are presenting Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, directed by William Greaves, tonight at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival held each year in Durham, NC.

In Greaves's experimental, improvisational masterpiece, a second film crew documents the first while they record a series of actors reenacting the same breakup scene over and over again. Tempers flare and complications abound as the struggling crew rebels against Greaves's refusal to define and chart the direction of the project. Set in Central Park in 1968, this cultural landmark is an insightful and riotous observation of the psychology of performance and the madness of moviemaking.

Greaves will be awarded this year's Career Award by the festival. You can find more information about him here.

Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One will be screened tonight at The Carolina Theatre at 11pm and will be introduced by Mac McCaughan.
