PennSound Cinema

The PennSound Cinema is part of the the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing and its work brings together a range of wonderful films featuring Robert Ashley, Tom Leonard, and Lora Odell. One of the most remarkable finds here is "Music with Roots in the Aether" which is an opera for television series by noted composer, Philip Glass. Visitors can scroll through the list to find profiles of each author or composer. Some of the films are most curious, particularly George Kuchar’s "Wild Night in El Reno” which consists of an assemblage of sounds, images, and video filmed in Nevada. Poets, authors, and lovers of film and the written word will find this entire site most wondrous. It's a great collection and could well be used in any number of cinema or English courses.
