ETHEL
Directed by Steve Cosson
Music by Mary Ellen Childs, Ralph Farris, Kip Jones, Dorothy Lawson, Ulysses Owens Jr., Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate, Tema Watstein, and James Kimo Williams

In 1971, a hundred hired-gun photographers fanned out across the country as part of the EPA’s Project Documerica to capture America’s sometimes fabled, sometimes fraught relationship to its land. In Documerica, the adventurous string quartet ETHEL lends rich new dimension to the images from that project, with help from projection artist Deborah Johnson (Planetarium, 2013 Winter/Spring Season) and eight wildly disparate composers.

New music by acclaimed contemporary composer Mary Ellen Childs, Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer Ulysses Owens Jr. (Christian McBride Big Band), Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate from the Chickasaw Nation, blues maven James Kimo Williams, and members of ETHEL complements those transfigured images from the EPA archive in this moving meditation on America’s big skies, ghost towns, purple mountain majesties, and pulses of the urban environment.
