اختيار القيّمين على المعرض 2021
Sunday, Dec 19, 2021 - Feb 26, 2022
The Museum’s annual survey of some of our favorite films of the year returns with another rich harvest of cinema—and television—at its best. The first iteration since 2019, following a pandemic-dictated hiatus, Curators’ Choice 2021 evidences a year of stunning ambition, excellence, experimentation, irreverence, liberation, and fury. While 2021 was a challenging year for the movies, with Hollywood and audiences gradually returning to theaters, it’s been a wildly exciting time for international, independent, and festival-oriented films. From idiosyncratic musicals (أنيت) to revisionist westerns (قوة الكلب); from feminist noirs (Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time و Nina Wu) to deluded male melodramas (صاروخ أحمر); and from exuberant family fare (ميتشل مقابل الآلات) to masterful achievements in serial storytelling (سكة حديد تحت الأرض), this year’s Curators’ Choice offers a wide-eyed, peripheral view of the current state of the cinematic arts.
Organized by Curator of Film Eric Hynes and Assistant Curator of Film Edo Choi.
