SCREENING

History’s Future

Ongoing

With director Fiona Tan in person 

Presented by the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York

New York Premiere. Netherlands/Germany/Ireland. Dir. Fiona Tan. 2016, 95 mins. In English, German, French, and Dutch with English subtitles.With Mark O’Halloran, Denis Lavant, Anne Consigny, Christos Passalis. The feature film debut from acclaimed visual artist Fiona Tan, and co-written with film critic Jonathan Romney, is a mind-bending, genre-hopping tour through contemporary Europe. Following a mugging, a man known only as “MP” (Mark O’Halloran) suffers total amnesia. Without a past, he embarks on a surreal odyssey through the continent in search of his identity. Bursting with retina-dazzling images and weighty ideas, History’s Future is a heady voyage through time, memory, and Europe in an age of age of unrest. Watch out for a memorable turn by French cult actor Denis Lavant (Holy Motors).
