The Greater Circulation
Film by Antero Alli

“The Greater Circulation” (2005; 93 min. USA) is Antero Alli’s cinematic treatment of poet Rainer Maria Rilke’s epic lament, “Requiem For a Friend”, where an actress, a dancer, and a visual artist stage Rilke’s work as a paratheatrical performance in present time as the film intercuts to flashbacks of the poet composing his “Requiem” a hundred years earlier in the Hotel Biron, Paris.   Filmmaker Q&A after the movie.

ParaTheatrical ReSearch is dedicated to the insurrection of the poetic imagination through its own distinct style of physical theatre accompanied by song, poetic text, and film.  Antero Alli, artistic director and Sylvi Alli, musical director.
