A new restoration of Stanley Kubrick’s Fear and Desire begins a run at Metrograph alongside his final film Eyes Wide Shut, guest curator Adam Piron comes to 7 Ludlow to present the films from his series Save the Man: Pre-Code Hollywood’s Native America, and Tim Robbins and Sister Helen Prejean come for a discussion following Dead Man Walking.
Restorations at Metrograph
Kubrick’s audacious and too-little-seen feature debut, made when he was a 24-year-old industry outsider, is the harrowing story of a group of soldiers who, after surviving a plane crash, must embarking on a surreal journey to escape from behind enemy lines. Premiering at the Venice Film Festival, Fear and Desire introduced the world to a filmmaker with a preternatural genius for image-making, while today its anti-war sentiments seem to look forward to future films like his Paths of Glory and Full Metal Jacket.
FEAR AND DESIRE
A DIFFERENT SCORE
MODESTY AND SHAME
When the versatile, brilliant Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller passed away in 2018, he left behind a wealth of enduring, transcendent images, spanning the glory days of the New German Cinema in the late ’60s through to the dawn of the digital cinematography era. Accompanying our tribute series Robby Müller: Remain in Light, the Metrograph Journal has gathered quotes from nine film workers who have been touched by Müller and his work, either as long-time collaborators or keen-eyed admirers of his prodigious, painterly talent.
Anaïs Ngbanzo’s directorial debut, streaming exclusively on Metrograph At Home, incorporates previously unseen interviews and recordings from late composer Julius Eastman’s archive, revealing the political dimension of his practice, alongside extensive footage of musician Devonté Hynes rehearsing and performing a selection of Eastman-penned pieces.
The Metrograph Interview
The avant-garde director and cinematographer Babette Mangolte speaks about her five decades of filming performance, subjectivity, loss, and Delphine Seyrig.
Life in Film: A Babette Mangolte Retrospective opens at 7 Ludlow on September 3.
