In addition to one-off screenings, Lightbox Film Center runs several film series over the calendar year, including:
THE FILMS OF PHILIPPE GARREL - APRIL 2018
At a time when the auteurs of the French New Wave were basking in international success, the young Philppe Garrel emerged with a singular, anarchistic vision that pushed the limits of an already-groundbreaking movement. As the civil unrest in France sparked by the events of May ’68 reverberated around the globe, Garrel and a coterie of filmmakers known as the Zanzibar group began dismantling the structure and language of the cinema that preceded them. Throughout the 1970s, while involved in a tumultuous relationship with German model and chanteuse Nico, Garrel made some of the most daring and visionary cinema in all of Europe. Often incorporating aspects of his personal life and casting members of his own family in his narratives, Garrel pioneered a singular style of filmmaking with hints of Robert Bresson, Jacques Rivette and Andy Warhol, and an aesthetic dominated by minimalism and existential ennui
THE FILMS OF JOAQUIM PEDRO DE ANDRADE - MAY 2018
In collaboration with Kino Lorber, Lightbox
presents a retrospective of the work of Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, one of the
most important figures in the Cinema Novo movement that transformed Brazilian film
in the 1960s and ’70s. Hailing from a culturally prominent family in
Rio de Janeiro, Andrade grew up in close contact with some of the country’s
greatest artists, writers, and scholars. Abandoning his university education to
pursue filmmaking, he would soon join in the formally and politically audacious
Cinema Novo. Andrade’s films combined a sophisticated,
modernist approach with an uncompromisingly critical, often outrageous, and
uniquely Brazilian sensibility that makes his work every bit as vital today as
it was when he made it.
