The BQE by Sufjan Stevens

Some great news has been brought to my attention! Sufjan Stevens' The BQE is finally being released to CD and DVD October 20th, 2009- two years after its debut. The BQE is a project that includes an original film, small orchestral score, and hoola dancers... an overall "symphonic and cinematic exploration of New York City's infamous Brooklyn-Queens Expressway." Stevens used the negative sentiments caused by this NY expressway, and turned them into various forms of art. I'd love to work on a project like this someday. Here is the trailer, even though it tells nothing of what the film will entail.
