Gus Van Sant

Gus Van Sant

June 27 to July 1
By turns a determined outsider artist and an insider Hollywood player, equally effective when operating as an austere, experimentally-oriented formalist and as a traditional narrative director of unusual emotional directness and potency, Gus Van Sant has produced one of the most diverse, unexpected, and consistently inspired bodies of work in recent American cinema.
Dziga Vertov Group: Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin

Dziga Vertov Group: Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin

July 18 to July 25
Teaming with Jean-Pierre Gorin, Jean-Luc Godard created the Dziga Vertov Group, a collective named for the groundbreaking Soviet documentarian that would produce highly didactic, communally-authored films heavily informed by Brechtian epic theater and Marxist-Leninist self-critique, made outside of the conventional avenues of production for screening outside of conventional theatrical venues.
ACADEMY AT METROGRAPH

ACADEMY AT METROGRAPH

July 19 to August 1
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' year-long residency at Metrograph is a monthly series showcasing film prints from the Academy Film Archive, home to one of the most diverse and extensive motion picture collections in the world. Coming Soon: GREASE 40th Anniversary screening on July 19.
Gérard Blain

Gérard Blain

July 27 to August 3
Famously obstinate as an actor, Gérard Blain was no less so as a director, and his refusal to compromise often made it difficult for him to get his films made. Nevertheless, in the eight theatrical features he directed over the three decades, Blain earned Mia Hansen-Løve’s description of him as “the real inheritor of Bresson.”
Yoshida x 3

Yoshida x 3

August 3 to August 10
Yoshishige Yoshida, also known as Kiju Yoshida, is by any name one of the masters of the Japanese New Wave, combining a pioneer’s explorative drive with an incisive political mind to forge a body of work that dug deep into his nation’s complicated history in order to explain its troubled present.
Makoto Shinkai

Makoto Shinkai

August 10 to August 17
For years considered the rising star of Japanese animation, Makoto Shinkai has more than arrived today as a consummate genius of the form and the auteur behind the highest-grossing anime of all-time, 2016’s YOUR NAME.
Truffaut x 7

Truffaut x 7

August 15 to August 22
The most vicious street fighter of the Cahiers du cinema writers turned the tenderest and most emotionally direct of the New Wave critics-cum-filmmakers, often represented by the same few key works—here Truffaut the multifaceted artist is on display in all his range.
Larry Clark

Larry Clark

August 23 to August 30
Over fifty when his debut feature, Kids, was released to a clamor of controversy in 1995, the polarizing Clark has remained to this day an ageless enfant terrible, exemplifying the spirit of adolescent rebellion and, to cite the title of one of his infamous photography collections, teenage lust.
Dario Argento

Dario Argento

September 18 to September 24
When it comes to Dario Argento, the stylist supreme of horror cinema, one might first think of an insidious mood, of piercingly intense colors, of a scrap of haunting music or a set piece in which the camera sets off on its own inexplicable course or an act of violence at once shocking, sensuous, and beautiful.
