The acclaimed new album Promises from jazz great Pharoah Sanders , electronic musician Floating Points , and the London Symphony Orchestra will be part of a new film that explores artist Julie Mehretu's 2003 painting, Congress . The film, Promises: Through Congress , will premiere virtually April 24th at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT via the Whitney in New York and the Broad in Los Angeles. Registration for the premiere is free and open on the websites of both museums. The film, directed by Trevor Tweeten, comes after portions of Congress — which is a large, 72- x 96-inch ink and acrylic on canvas piece — were featured on the cover of Promises . Tweeten filmed the movie at the Broad this winter, and a trailer shows how the slow camera pans over the sprawling canvas pair with Sanders and Floating Points' own expansive musical work.
