Museum of the Moving Image
, New York
Curated by Dennis Lim, Rachael Rakes, and David Schwartz
To start the new year, the Museum introduces a brand new showcase for inventive, groundbreaking international cinema. Modest in size but ambitious in scope, First Look is a highly selective group of films that are distinguished by their artistic audacity. Established and emerging directors create new approaches to narrative, documentary, and experimental film, in many cases creating hybrid forms. These films are adventures; they don't only bring us to new places, they offer new ways of seeing the world, and they redefine their medium. Nearly all of our selections are New York premieres, and many are accompanied by personal appearances. In-depth articles about the films will be published on Moving Image Source, the Museum's multimedia magazine.
