Week of Events
Craig Shemin of The Jim Henson Legacy introduces this action-packed compilation of great Muppet moments. May 7 and 13!
In one of Akerman’s greatest films, a celebrated Belgian filmmaker tours cities in West Germany, Belgium, and France with her work, and passes through anonymous, depopulated spaces like a ghost.
Adapting Rose Leiman Goldemberg’s off-Broadway play based on Sylvia Plath’s letters to her mother Aurelia, Akerman delivers a spare reflection on the inextricable ties binding mother and daughter.
On May 7, Joshua Glick (co-curator of our Deepfake exhibition) introduces horror sensation The Blair Witch Project, exploring the film’s clever, effective packaging and how the 1999 release anticipated a new millennium of unstable evidence on screen. Followed by reception.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest films ever made, Chantal Akerman’s singular avant-garde epic screens April 29 and May 8.
Built around a series of conversations in person and online between the filmmaker and her mother, a Belgian Holocaust survivor, No Home Movie is both diaristic and avant-garde, a meditation on family relations, memory, and death in the modern world.
