JERRY SCHATZBERG & HARMONY KORINE IN CONVERSATION

An unbeatable actorly duet produced by New Hollywood at its most fearless, filmmaker and photographer Jerry Schatzberg’s Scarecrow takes us on a ride with two drifters—hard-nosed, hot-headed hustler Max (Gene Hackman) and his pensive partner, a former sailor named Lion (Al Pacino)—resulting in one of the undersung treasures of a creative high point in U.S. cinema. On the occasion of Gagosian Quarterly’s Winter 2019 release and the exhibition Birth Machine Baby: H. R. Giger and Mark Prent | Curated by Harmony Korine at Gagosian, Park & 75, New York, Schatzberg will speak with Harmony Korine about the film, their influences, and the role of humor in their varied practices in a conversation moderated by Quarterly contributor Carlos Valladares.

Screening co-presented with Gagosian.
