Matthew Barney's River of Fundament Los Angeles Premier

A radical reinvention of Norman Mailer’s novel Ancient Evenings, 'River of Fundament' is the latest work by world-renowned art visionary Matthew Barney in collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler. Barney and Bepler, who Autre featured in Issue 003, fuse narrative cinema, live performance, sculpture and opera, reconstructing Mailer’s hypersexual story of Egyptian gods and the seven stages of death alongside the rise and fall of the American car industry. Alluring, authentic and intense, this vast, multidimensional experience is interspersed with remarkable live performances filmed over six years. The film’s cast includes Paul Giamatti, Elaine Stritch, Aimee Mullins, Milford Graves and Maggie Gyllenhaal. River of Fundament will be having an exclusive premier on April 25, 2015 at UCLA's Royce Hall. You can purchase tickets here.
