Sufjan Stevens' Film, The BQE, to be Released in October

Sufjan Stevens

According to Asthmatic Kitty, Stevens put the project on the back burner after beginning to feel "disenfranchised with the magnitude of the universe." Recently, however, the ever-versatile Stevens breathed new life into The BQE, scoring the music, editing the video, expanding the project and setting an October release date. Although Stevens has scored a film before, this will mark his directorial debut.
 will be released Oct. 20 through Asthmatic Kitty, and will be sold as a deluxe package. According to the label, "the double-disc album will include the original film on DVD, the original soundtrack on CD, a 40-page booklet (with photos and liner notes), and a stereoscopic image reel (aka View-Master®), created by illustrator Stephen Halker."
