The film opera River of Fundament is the latest project by Matthew Barney, an artist well known to audiences of the T-Mobile New Horizons Film Festival from his Cremaster series. Along with composer Jonathan Bepler, he has created a seductive and, at the same time, repulsive visual and musical tale that deals with the game of life with death, metamorphosis, and reincarnation.
