We were thrilled to welcome Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan (who together make up the band SQÜRL) to NYFF61 to discuss dadaism, improvisation, and scoring Return to Reason: Short Films by Man Ray in a conversation moderated by NYFF Advisor Gina Telaroli.

Restored on the occasion of its 100th anniversary, Man Ray’s first foray into filmmaking, the wildly improvisational and unapologetically fragmentary Return to Reason, is here paired with three other newly restored early films by Ray and set to haunting and hypnotic new original music by SQÜRL (Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan).

Enjoy the conversation with Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan below.
