2:00PM-3:15PM  
Music and Film: "From the River to the Ocean" with Rozalind MacPhail, flute/composer/filmmaker

Join us for a special screening event accompanied by live musical performance celebrating the past, present and future dreams of the Port City. CAM is teaming up with the Cucalorus Film Festival (www.cucalorus.org) and Newfoundland multi-instrumentalist and international award-winning composer/filmmaker Rozalind MacPhail (www.rozalindmacphail.com) to present "From the River to the Ocean". Collaborating with filmmakers inspired by their personal connections to Wilmington, this special event also features stunning films from Rozalind’s travels across Canada and a rare opportunity to see an extract of the archive film "Wilmington, My Hometown" (1947) held in the archives of the New Hanover County Public Library offering a staged snapshot of postwar life in the city.

Rozalind's multi-layered sound looping and live flute performance accompanies a striking mix of films from historical to social commentary, to create a vivid sonic/visual portrait on CAM's big screen. The screening and performance will be followed by a Q&A with Rozalind MacPhail. Purchase seats on CAM's website, by phone and at CAM's Visitor Services desk. CAM Members and Students with valid ID: $18.00, Non-Members: $23.00. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
“It‘s easy to fall for the eclectic sounds of this creative mastermind, and you will probably get lost in your imagination while falling.“ (Rock Eden Magazine)

Innovative Gemeinhardt Artist/Clinician, Rozalind MacPhail recently took home an East Coast Music Award for Electronic Recording of the Year and MusicNL’s Female Artist of the Year. One of the world’s leaders in flute looping and live film scoring, this classically-trained flutist blends effected flute, electronics, voice, omnichord, field recordings and silent film through Ableton Live. MacPhail creates music for film and live performance and has released several albums of original work. She explores new ways to combine image and sound, in works that speak honestly of place, person and the human experience.
