The Greater Circulation
By Antero Alli
-- appearing in person

Rainer Maria Rilke’s "Requiem for a Friend“ (via the lyrical Stephen Mitchell translation) is the heart, soul, and mind of this marvelous drama from the master underground film legend Antero Alli. This production has a deceptively simple concept: an experimental theater company in Berkeley, California, stages a performance ritual based on Rilke's poem and during the course of rehearsals and production the impact of the poem comes to challenge and haunt the people involved in it. And beyond this concept is a deep, provocative, and often disturbing drama which poses questions of love, art, mortality and grief with the grace and majesty of Rilke’s work. This docufiction is a marvel of mature emotion and deep wisdom; few films have been able to explore issues surrounding death with such grace and intelligence. Rilke himself figures in the film via flashbacks which recreate the physical and emotional circumstances behind “Requiem for a Friend.”
