First Look (2013)
January 4–13, 2013 at
Museum of the Moving Image
, New York
First Look is the Museum's annual showcase for inventive, groundbreaking new international cinema. Many of the films in this year's edition take the form of journeys-geographical, emotional, and artistic-and the series itself is a journey, with 26 works, feature-length and short films, from a dozen countries. The films are by established masters and emerging filmmakers, and almost all are New York premieres.
With its debut in 2012, First Look was instantly recognized as a vital new addition to New York's film scene, an oasis of thoughtful and provocative filmmaking amid the hype and noise of the awards season. It is a great way for New York filmgoers to start the year, just ahead of the Sundance and Rotterdam film festivals. In its second year, First Look has expanded its breadth, with genre-defying and boundary-pushing works of all forms, demonstrating how cinematic creativity and depth can be found in modes as divergent as action movies and the avant-garde.
