Film critics don’t often lavish the attention they give to directors and stars on production designers, but the production designer’s sometimes unheralded art consists of nothing less than building the world of a movie, in the process doing a great deal to create those distinct cinematic environments that one wants to visit again and again and again. To better appreciate the painstaking research and crucial creative contribution of the production designer, Metrograph is proud to pay tribute to Becker, whose 25-year career as a lead production designer encompasses collaborations with Todd Haynes, David O. Russell, Ang Lee, screening some of the finest examples of her work as well as films that provided her formative influences, including movies with production design by Polly Platt (The Last Picture Show), Richard Sylbert (Rosemary’s Baby), and Brian Eatwell (Walkabout).
