Debuting at the 78th Whitney Biennial opener on Friday, March 17th, the 14:50 film accompanying famed saxophonist Kamasi Washington’s “Harmony of Difference,” directed by Park Pictures’ filmmaker AG Rojas, has been released. In the footage, Rojas pairs close, focused subjects in varying displays of intimacy with sweeping backgrounds and cultural vignettes, often juxtaposing dark and introspective scenes with bright, colorful displays. Washington’s starring saxophone melody stitches the film together to highlight unity between diverse lives. Rojas expertly captures the haunting capacities of human emotion throughout, enclosing the film with reels of brilliant galaxies that harken to our link with the greater cosmos.
