Philippe Garrel

Philippe Garrel

November 11 to November 23
“The child of Cocteau and Godard” (Rivette), “the proverbial underrated genius” (Assayas), Philippe Garrel began making films at sixteen, fired by a mythopoetic vision and a political fervor that crested and crashed in May ’68. This retrospective, the most complete yet in the United States, including recent digital restorations courtesy of Re: Voir, and new 35mm prints, will provide a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience fifty years of work from cinema’s foremost poet.
Return of the Roman Porno

Return of the Roman Porno

November 17 to November 24
The formula was simple: a runtime not longer than eighty minutes, a sex act every ten or so, and a shoot not longer than a week. Other than this it was anything goes, and Roman Porno became an experiment-friendly training ground for a whole generation of risk-taking auteurs. In 2016 Nikkatsu invited five filmmakers to make new Roman Porno films according to the old rules, with anarchic results that did the tradition proud.
