Two Films, Five Cities
F&V adjunct faculty member Danièle Wilmouth’s films Fanfare for Marching Band and Eleanore & the Timekeeper are traveling the world.
Fanfare for Marching Band
A music and dance film collaboration between filmmaker Wilmouth,
choreographer Peter Carpenter and the circus punk marching band Mucca
Pazza. Saturated colors, euphoric music, and ecstatic dance choreography fail to engage an immobilized public. Fanfare for Marching Band follows the antics of a ragtag musical militia, as they embark on an inept invasion through a parallel universe where their exuberant music is out of sync and unheard.

Eleanore & the Timekeeper
The complexities of a mother's sacrifice are discovered when Eleanore, at age 91, moves her developmentally disabled son Ronnie into a group home after 64 years of devoted companionship and daily ritual in their modest Pennsylvania farmhouse. Shot on 16mm, the film is a quiet love story between a mother and son, which celebrates life’s natural cycles of monotony and impermanence. Eleanore & the Timekeeper is the first feature-length film by the award-winning experimental filmmaker Wilmouth.
