The Revenge of the Dead Indians: In Memoriam John Cage (1993), a composed film directed by Henning Lohner.

Director Henning Lohner worked with John Cage during his later years, including collaborating with Cage on his only film, One11. During that time, Lohner filmed interviews and footage with Cage, and after Cage's death decided to assemble some of it into this unique 'composed film' based on musical principles a tribute to Cage, his thoughts, music and influence. The film also features 42 personalities from the well known (actors, architects, artists, choreographers, composers, theoreticians, writers) to the unknown (like street cleaners and market vendors) Ð in conversation with each other. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints and opinions. 'The Revenge of the Dead Indians' is neither documentary nor feature film. The thematic story development is a combination of 'found' video and audio landscapes along with theatrically directed readings and interviews.
