complete a documentary which is on its way already.
Let me introduce you to my project.:
MOONWATCHER - The Documentary
MOONWATCHER is a 90-minute documentary made for
theatrical release and adapted for the television format.
Space. Time. Nature. Technology. Art. Destiny
After four painstaking years of production, Stanley Kubricks
"2001, A Space Odyssey" finally hit the screen in April 1968. This
extraordinary spell-binding tale of human evolution and destiny
evokes the great mystery of mankinds existential search, and
his ultimate quest for self-realization.
2001s Dawn-of-Man sequence, featured the alpha-ape
character of "Moonwatcher", the creation of performer/artist, Dan
Richter, "Moonwatcher" and his tribe are doomed to extinction.
Then, he picks up a bone, uses it as a tool and ultimately crafts it
into a weapon of destruction.
The pivotal sequence remains one of the most lurid and
provoking visual metaphors in cinematic history.
Artist Dan Richter collaborated with some of the most influential
and creative minds of the day. Andy Warhol, Arthur C. Clarke,
John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Allen Ginsberg and Kubrick himself
were among his peer group. These writers, artists and
performers used their art as a vehicle to strike at the very core of
the status quo.
In MOONWATCHER Dan Richter plays host to a vibrant
examination of the post-world war years of the 1960s, the age of
radical query, and the role of artists in stretching accepted
paradigms that challenged and transformed ideas, we travel
through the decades of discovery, pop culture, space travel,
globalization of corporate monoliths, capitalism, consumerism
and the vanished enemies behind the iron curtain.
Re-think the human condition as you are invited into the
nature-drenched environment of science fiction author Arthur C.
Clarke and the urban world of avant garde artist and musician,
MOONWATCHER - The Documentary, explores the artistic legacy
of Kubricks profound commentary, and of those artists whose
creative output defined their generation and future perspectives.
As the catalysts for true examination their expressions reveal
profound insights as to our ultimate purpose on earth.
