Master Class: Murray Lerner

If there were a Mount Rushmore of American musical documentaries, Murray Lerner’s face would figure among those of Albert Maysles, D.A. Pennebaker and Martin Scorsese. His capacity to furnish us with some of the most electrifying, visionary and inspiring moments in popular music is outstanding. And the list, heartstopping: Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, The Who, The Doors, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix... And, without avoiding the contexts and conjunctures in which they took place: the creation of a new musical culture, aesthetic, and political, surrounding the Newport Festival in Festival!, the conflict between art and money, music and business  in Message to Love: The Isle of Wight Festival, or the dark – and delirious – side of the Chinese cultural revolution in  From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China. In a moment of particular exacerbation with the visual culture, it becomes especially interesting to discover the role that avant-garde poetry plays in his conception of the documentary, or how directing has led him to write, film and edit almost all his films, not just for the DIY element, but moreover for the command of materials typical of any creator worth their salt.
