Welcome to Metrograph: John Ford Edition

Welcome to Metrograph: John Ford Edition

April 27 to April 30
The rule for ‘Welcome to Metrograph’ title selection was no repeats of any director, which was all well and good until we got to John Ford, who cranked out stone-cold masterpieces like it was going out of style.
Welcome to Metrograph:<br>A to Z

Mother's Day

May 13 to May 14

Terry Zwigoff

Terry Zwigoff

May 19 to May 21
Terry Zwigoff never seemed to belong to the careerist, wheeler-dealer world of the Sundance indie, and that’s part of his charm. Zwigoff will appear in person.
Marlene

Marlene

May 23 to June 4
Chanteuse and actress, archetypal Berliner and ardent American antifascist, brooding sex symbol and willful camp icon, a paragon of feminine glamor who was as comfortable in top hat and tails or gorilla suit as in a ballgown—come fall in love again with Marlene Dietrich, a figure whose complex, bi-amorous screen persona contained multitudes.
Ozu in Color

Ozu in Color

May 26 to May 28
Often unfairly tagged as a traditionalist, Yasujirô Ozu was in fact entirely a man of his times—a keen social observer who tracked the tectonic shifts in Japanese life for more than thirty years, and an ardent cinephile who responded readily to changes in film grammar and technology.
Imported from France: Four Masterpieces in 35mm

Imported from France: Four Masterpieces in 35mm

June 2 to June 4
Sometimes word is received that a 35mm print, unavailable in the US, will soon arrive on these shores. Or perhaps there is a film programmers are eager to show, and must import the print. So, apropos of nothing other than not allowing a chance to project these films go by, Metrograph is thrilled to present four masterpieces of French cine.
Bresson Part II

Bresson Part II

June 4 to June 6
Every now and again we at Metrograph feel compelled to go back to Bresson. Why? Because doing so clears out the cobwebs, reminds us of what is necessary and beautiful in films.

On the occasion of the release of critic, professor, curator and filmmaker Brandon Harris’s first book, Making Rent in Bed-Stuy: A Memoir of Trying to Make it in New York City, Metrograph is pleased to present six films that speak to Bed-Stuy and the surrounding area’s rich cultural and political legacy as a black space, the lives of some of its most famous scions and as a bulwark, increasingly imperiled, for Brooklyn’s black population.
Father's Day at Metrograph

Father's Day at Metrograph

June 17 to June 18

So this Father’s Day, why not pay the ol’ man back for all of those dollars spent at the concession stand, and kick back with a couple of movies that offer pure, uncut, free-and-easy pleasure?
