About We Can't Go Home Again

Year Released:
Documentary, Experimental
Ray’s final film was an experimental, pseudodocumentary collaboration with his students at SUNY – Binghamton in the 1970s. While it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973, he continued editing the film until his death in 1979. Seeking a new language of cinema, he projected multiple Super 8, 16 millimeter, and video images on a pro-filmic screen and then re-filmed them with a 35 millimeter camera. This new version is the most complete cut of the film, digitally restored under the supervision of Ray’s widow Susan to commemorate his centenary.
