Darius Khondji

November 19 to November 26

Darius Khondji in Person.

Born in Tehran to Persian-French parentage, raised from a young age in France, and schooled at NYU, Darius Khondji’s international upbringing would prepare him for an equally international career, working with some of the greatest living directors and helping them to express their visions through the language he knows with unparalleled fluency, that of the cinematic image. Through the years Khondji has worked with talents that include David Fincher, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, Wong-Kar Wai, and James Gray, and while his work for each is as distinct as the worlds they create, he brings to every film a compositional genius and a peerless attention to minute qualities of atmosphere, gifts which allow him to pick and choose his collaborators. To see his finest work united, as it will be in Metrograph’s vital retrospective, is to wander through the gallery of a modern master.
