Introduction by director Jon Lefkovitz: vimeo.com/419134756
“Terrific, insightful and a rare look into one of cinema's greats." -Reconsidering Cinema
"A master editor gives his sermon." -Metaflix
“I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. SIGHT & SOUND is a fascinating look at Murch’s work. And given that the film has Murch’s own seal of approval, it should be regarded as a must-see for cinephiles, aspiring filmmakers, and historians of the medium.” -A Fistful of Film
"Will hit film, sound, and music lovers straight to their souls." -Film Threat
Official Selection, 2020 Hear Now Festival
