Brooklyn Paper Previews Sufjan Stevens and Ray Raposa's Live Score For Beyond This Place
"The perfectly paced score — which Stevens and Raposa wrote and recorded over the course of one week in Stevens’s waterfront recording studio last year — rests against “Beyond This Place” filmmaker Kaleo La Belle’s portrait of his own turbulent relationship with his father. The film, written, photographed and directed by La Belle, documents his attempt to reconnect with his estranged hippie dad — a lightly toasted free spirit who abandoned his family to ride bikes and make hallucinogenic drugs — by embarking on a 500-mile bicycle trip from Portland, Oregon to Mount St. Helens with him."
