Synecdoche, New York


Introduced by Mark Friedberg


Dir. Charlie Kaufman. 2008, 124 mins. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Samantha Morton, Michelle Williams. Charlie Kaufman’s dreamlike depiction of a theater director’s efforts to create an alternate-reality New York City within a warehouse gave Friedberg one of his greatest projects. For the design of this astonishingly imaginative film, Friedberg created sets of vast scale as well as intimate spaces that reflect the emotional truth of the film’s characters.

Free with Museum admission. Visitors who have purchased a ticket for the Moving Image Master Class with Mark Friedberg may also attend this screening for free.
