The Colorado River has carved a deep imprint on both the physical landscape of the American Southwest, and on the people who live near its waters. Confluence follows the indie folk band, The Infamous Flapjack Affair, as they traverse this endangered river system and create original music documenting the people and places along their journey.
INSTRUMENTS IN THE ARCHITECTURE: BUILDING THE PIANODROME
Directed by Austen McCowan & Will Hewitt
United Kingdom, 14 mins
Pianos are being thrown away at a tremendous rate – hauled away, set on fire and their valuable heavy metal sold for scrap. Tim, Leon and their team of inspired artists, musicians and volunteers have reclaimed these unloved instruments to build the world’s first 100-seater amphitheatre made entirely from up-cycled pianos. Balancing the artistic integrity of Tim’s vision with Leon’s practicality and realism tests the strength of their relationship as they race to complete the Pianodrome for its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
