"The Peasant and the Priest" by Esther Podemski in NY New Filmmaker's Festival

Image
"What can a 14th century fresco tell us about contemporary politics? More than you think."
On April 17, Esther Podemski's documentary, The Peasant and the Priest, screened at Anthology Film Archives' Courthouse Theater as part of the New Filmmakers Festival in New York City. 
The Peasant and the Priest is the story of two Italian men in their eighties whose ways of life have survived from medieval Italy to the present. One is a sharecropper, and one is a priest. Each try to contribute to a world that moves relentlessly and carelessly forward. 
The point of departure for exploring the two parallel lives is a 14th century fresco, The Allegory of Good and Bad Government, by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, shown above.

Rosenblum’s proposed project is a concerto for the renowned Classical/Klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer. Titled Lament/Witches’ Sabbath, Rosenblum will compose the concerto for Krakauer and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, directed by Gil Rose. The new piece will be loosely based on the last movement of Berlioz’s Symphony Fantastique, "Songe d'une nuit du sabbat," and will be a re-working of elements of that music with Klezmer inspired excursions based on the folk elements already embedded in the Berlioz. According to Rosenblum,

“It’s meant as a new piece that appropriates, transforms, and interprets elements from the original. The idea is to mesh my microtonal musical language with David’s improvisational sensibili…
