Composed in the wake of America’s Vietnam War, and telling the story of the 1068 Battle of Hastings, Judith Wier’s epic “opera in three acts and an epilogue” is a stunning and moving tour-de-force for one unaccompanied soprano. IN Series crafts this work into a unique film made in evocative ruins of the power-plant of the Walter Reed Army Hospital.
