About Bill Morrison

Bill Morrison (born Chicago, 1965) makes films that reframe long-forgotten moving images as part of a collective mythology. His work has been recognized with the Alpert Award, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Art, and a Guggenheim fellowship. Morrison had a mid-career retrospective at MoMA in 2014. His found footage opus Decasia (2002), with music by Michael Gordon, was the first film of the 21st century to be selected to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. The Great Flood (2013), with music by Bill Frisell, was recognized with the Smithsonian Ingenuity Award of 2014 for historical scholarship. Dawson City: Frozen Time (2016), with music by Alex Somers, was included on numerous lists of the best films of the decade (2010s), including those of the chief critics for the Associated Press (Jake Coyle), Los Angeles Times (Kenneth Turan), and Vanity Fair (Richard Lawson).
