Bewersdorf’s Favorites: ‘Hannah’ Takes the Summer

Bewersdorf's Favorites: 'Hannah' Takes the Summer

There’s something kinda cool and crazy about the fact that Joe Swanberg’s Hannah Takes the Stairs is a summer movie, technically. While it opens at the end of this summer (August 22 in New York) and certainly is far far far from what one would call a conventional “blockbuster,” it sort of is a blockbuster in a weird, American indie kinda way. So, I wanted to poll some of the cast/crew about their favorite films and music during the Summer of 2007. Unofficially asking what other summer entertainment can you recommend to audiences. Next up, is Hannah composer/soundman/cameo-player Kevin Bewersdorf:

Me: What is your favorite album of Summer 2007 and why?

Kevin Bewersdorf: Gustav Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder / Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, with Janet Baker and Sir John Barbirolli conducting (EMI Classics, 1968). Because I am recording a new album right now and I am studying lots of Mahler to prepare for it. This summer I also like Hurricane Chris’ “A Bay Bay.”

Me: What is your favorite movie of Summer 2007 and why?

Kevin Bewersdorf: I haven’t seen any movies this summer yet. I was going to see Live Free or Die Hard, but I ditched. Still, the only movie I like is Beverly Hills Cop 1.

See (and hear) more of Kevin and his music, in ‘Hannah Takes the Stairs,’ on August 22 at the IFC Center in New York.
