- 2013, Philip Harder, USA, 65 min.
Duluth-based cult band Low, led by Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, is showcased through this complete collection of the music videos made by the band over their twenty-year history in collaboration with filmmaker Philip Harder, assembled from original 16mm negatives, including both new and old material and outtakes. Inventive and surreal, these short films, some never before made public, expand on the band’s minimalist aesthetic with spare but haunting visuals that illuminate numbers including: “Words” (1994), “Shame” (1995), “Over the Ocean” (1996), “Canada” (2002), and “Monkey” (2005).
