It has been said that every filmmaker makes only one film, their first, and that every subsequent work is a matter of refinement and reconfiguration. That may or may not be true, but with this new series you’ll have ample opportunity to judge on a case by case, director-by-director basis, as we bring together bookending early and late works by a bevy of world-class filmmakers, catching them at the beginning of their creative journey and at the end of the road. Youthful ebullience and the twilit beauty of late-style works exist side by side in this recurring series of provocative pairings, seeking to offer fresh, bracingly compact perspectives on sprawling creative careers.
