Experimental filmmaker Bill Morrison, best known for his film "Decasia," was born in Chicago and moved to New York City to attend the prestigious Cooper Union School of Art. After graduating in 1989, Morrison began his professional career as a writer and director on the film "Night Highway" in 1990. He followed up in 1992 with "Photo Op," which was originally a stage production. Not one to delegate authority, Morrison served as the producer, editor, director, and writer on "Ghost Trip," "Film of Her," and his 2002 masterpiece "Decasia." A collaboration with composer Michael Gordon, the film uses found footage, often damaged, to create a powerful meditation on cinema and the transitory nature of life itself. With frequent comparisons to the pioneering work of filmmaker Stan Brakhage, "Decasia" propelled Morrison into the top ranks of the American avant-garde. Indeed, several of Morrison's films were since acquired by the Museum of Modern Art.
