As part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 150th anniversary celebrations, the documentary Beyond This Place will be presented October 30 at 7:30 pm with the original score played live in the Opera House. The film follows director Kaleo La Belle as he attempts to reconcile a relationship with his estranged, drugged out father Cloud Rock. They embark on an ambitious 500-mile tour across the Pacific Northwest, looking for a way to connect after years of emotional distance. It has just been announced that La Belle will also be in attendance for a post-show Artist Talk, moderated by novelist Rick Moody.


Sufan Stevens is a childhood friend of La Belle’s (he and his brother Marzuki are the protagonist in Kaleo’s feature documentary film Crooked River in 2005). He collaborated on the soundtrack with Raymond Byron Magic Raposa, who records under the moniker Castanets. Together they created the soundtrack, capturing the various moods of the film. Sufjan re-recorded his song, “In the Devil’s Territory”, for the opening credits, while Raposa wrote an original song for the end credits called “Beyond This Place”.
