SOYLENT GREEN
Dir. Richard Fleischer (USA: 1973), 97 min.

In a densely overpopulated, starving New York City of the future, NYPD detective Robert Thorn investigates the murder of an executive at rations manufacturer Soylent Corporation. With the help of elderly academic Solomon “Sol” Roth, Thorn begins to make real progress – until the governor mysteriously pulls the plug. Obsessed with the mystery, Thorn steps out from behind the badge and launches his own investigation into the murder.

PIERRE MERCURE 1927-1966
Dir. Charles Gagnon (1970), 33 min.

Québec composer Pierre Mercure was widely known as an experimental composer who integrated music, dance, and theatre into an expressive form of new music.

THE SOUND OF SPACE/LE SON D’UN ESPACE
Dir. Charles Gagnon (1967-1968), 27 min.

One is initially struck by the paradoxical title of the film, The Sound of Space, and its silent, or absent, soundtrack. Composed of three sequences over twenty-four minutes, the film opens with gentle drifting camera pans throughout Gagnon’s painting studio.
