STAND STILL mayme kratz
directed by Suzanne Johnson
A Gnosis Ltd. Documentary
w/ Odyssey Film
Phoenix artist Mayme Kratz creates hauntingly beautiful works from a multitude of materials. Her sense of self and purpose are perfectly captured by Suzanne Johnson's film.
I recognized right away that a minimalist musical approach spoke to her work and the film. I chose instruments not usually associated with minimalism; guitar, harmonica, trumpet & and some piano. I hope that the music feels organic, like Mayme Kratz's gentle/strong work and Suzanne Johnson' s memorable film.
This film is currently being aired on PBS stations nationwide.
