Modern Cinema, Week 1: Haunted By Cinema

Friday, October 7–Sunday, October 9, 2016

Modern Cinema’s inaugural season kicks off with a weekend of films that have haunted the creative world since they were first screened—the works whose influence can be felt in all the films that followed and whose power has inspired our most important contemporary filmmakers. The lineup features an international cross-section of landmark films from the Criterion/Janus catalog, with work from such masters as Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Chantal Akerman, Michelangelo Antonioni, and more.

Modern Cinema’s Founding Supporters are Carla Emil and Rich Silverstein. Generous support is provided by The Susan Wildberg Morgenstein Fund. Additional support is provided by Becky Draper.
