ONE: Union of the Senses| a film by José Parlá. Featuring a score composed and performed live by El Michels Affair and the Michael Leonhart Orchestra.
BAM is pleased to present the New York premiere of ONE: Union of the Senses, an experimental documentary by Cuban-American artist José Parlá. This love letter to New York City is inspired by the artist's monumental 90-foot mural of the same name, commissioned for One World Trade Center in 2015. Starring the people of New York as well as the painter himself, the film captures Parlá's creative process in his studio and as he traverses the city, screening with live accompaniment of an original score by El Michels Affair and the Michael Leonhart Orchestra.
