Filmmakers & Actors In Person!

Fri, Oct 5, 2012 - Sun, Oct 7, 2012

We are proud to present the sixth German Currents Showcase, featuring some of the best German films of the past year, including teen drama COMBAT GIRLS, Martin Persiel’s skateboarding documentary THIS AIN’T CALIFORNIA, moving family drama HOME FOR THE WEEKEND (nominated for a Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival 2012), psychological backstage thriller CRACKS IN THE SHELL, and Hendrik Handloegten’s suspenseful drama SUMMER WINDOW, following a couple trying to survive the grief of losing a friend.


Kirk Douglas In Person!

Wed, Sep 19, 2012 - Sun, Sep 23, 2012

Kirk Douglas nurtured an early determined pursuit of an acting career that led him to the New York stage and later to Hollywood, where he scored a knockout punch with 1949's CHAMPION. The film established the persona - a tough guy who could be as ruthless as he was heroic - that helped make him a top box office draw for decades. A last remaining link to Hollywood's golden age, Kirk Douglas remains as inspiring in life as he is intense on screen. Join us for an in-person tribute to legendary actor, including LONELY ARE THE BRAVE, SPARTACUS, PATHS OF GLORY, ACE IN THE HOLE and 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA.

Thu, Sep 13, 2012 - Mon, Sep 17, 2012

The films of Chris Marker (July 29, 1921 - July 29, 2012) are a travelogue of pure mystery, where his beloved cats and owls materialize to remind us just how far we have to go and how much we have to remember. His favorite medium was the cinema essay: a series of impressions, snapshots and postcards from distant lands, linked together by Marker’s enigmatic voice. Join us for a tribute to the avant-garde filmmaker with a four-night program including LA JETEE, SANS SOLEIL, THE LAST BOLSHEVIK, ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF ANDREI ARSENEVICH, REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS TO COME and shorts program A Chris Marker Bestiary.


Thu, Aug 2, 2012 - Sun, Aug 19, 2012

From his big break in FROM HERE TO ETERNITY in 1953, to his Oscar-winning turn as the title character in Paddy Chayefsky and Delbert Mann’s MARTY, to his work in essential Westerns THE WILD BUNCH and JOHNNY GUITAR, Ernest Borgnine (January 24, 1917 - July 8, 2012) created an indelible gallery of unconventional but distinctly American characters. Join us for a 5-night tribute to the actor.


Thu, Jul 26, 2012 - Sun, Aug 12, 2012

Named for its Italian origins, the “spaghetti Western” was among the hottest dishes on the movie menu in the 1960s, with a group of brash, ambitious Italian filmmakers reinventing the most quintessentially American of genres. Stripping the form of its romantic patriotism and replacing it with bare-bones brutality and satire, the spaghetti Western incorporated widescreen framing, sweaty close-ups and expressive sound design (most often courtesy of composer Ennio Morricone), changing the way Westerns looked, sounded and felt. Small budgets bought plenty of bang for the lira, and relentless action and rootless antiheroes could be counted on to deliver appreciative audiences. Following Film Forum’s lauded program in New York, the American Cinematheque inherits this comprehensive salute to the spaghetti Western, and offers a look at the Wild West from a few thousand miles east.
