An Evening with Mark Pellington and a screening of U2 3D
Los Angeles-based filmmaker Mark Pellington made his mark as one of the most talented, inventive directors of music videos, collaborating with U2, Bruce Springsteen, Public Enemy, Nine InchNails, The Dave Matthews Band, and many others. His video for Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” is one of the most popular in history. He developed an ambitious non-linear collage style that reached its height with the groundbreaking series Buzz for MTV. He then became a successful director of feature films (Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies), and television (The United States of Poetry, Cold Case). Pellington will discuss his career, showing highlights from his work, in a conversation with Chief Curator David Schwartz. The discussion will be followed by a rare theatrical screening of the spectacular concert film U2 3D.
