Moving Image, 2005
Braden King is a New York-based filmmaker and visual artist. His most recent feature film, HERE, is a formally groundbreaking, landscape-obsessed road movie chronicling a brief but intense relationship between an American satellite-mapping engineer (Ben Foster) and an expatriate Armenian art photographer (Lubna Azabal) who impulsively decide to travel together into uncharted territory—both literally and metaphorically. Shot entirely on location in Armenia, HERE premiered at the 2011 Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals. A live installation version of the project, HERE [ THE STORY SLEEPS ], premiered at The Museum of Modern Art in 2010 and continues to tour internationally.
Additional credits include the lyric Aleutian Island documentary DUTCH HARBOR: WHERE THE SEA BREAKS ITS BACK (co-directed with Laura Moya); short films, including the award-winning HOME MOVIE; numerous gallery and museum exhibitons; and music videos for Sonic Youth, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy (Will Oldham), Dirty Three, Chan Marshall (Cat Power) and Sparklehorse.
