    The Films of Isaac Julien at MoMA, Feb. 7-11

    A few days late on this post, but I am happy to say that MoMA is running a short program called Critical Reverie: The Films of Isaac Julien 

    Here’s a but about the series in their words:

    Emerging in the neighboring club cultures of funk, disco, and soul; leftist political activism; and collectivism in British independent filmmaking, Julien made his first films as a student at Central Saint Martins. Through his films, Julien charted new representations of a self—black, gay, and British—that was largely excluded from the cultural climate of the 1980s, heralding what came to be known as New Queer Cinema. From Langston Hughes to Frantz Fanon to the 1977 Silver Jubilee, Julien combines documentary archival material with poetic fictionalizations that alternately stand in for a silenced ancestral past and act as the starting point for a viable future. 

    What’s Playing Today? : February 9th, 2014

    The Attendant (1993) and Frantz Fanon, Black Skin White Mask (1996). The screening starts at 2pm and will have a total run length of 52min. They will be screening back to back.

    Young Soul Rebels (1991) screens a little but later in the day at 4:30pm. Run time 1hr 45min.

    To end the evening, Derek (2008) will be screened at 7pm with a run time of 1hr 18min.

    MoMA Presents: Manila in the Claws of Light (1975)

    I personally don’t know much about the cinema of the the Philippines, so when I heard that MoMA was playing Lino Brock’as 1975 film Manila in the Claws of Light, I jumped at the chance to buy tickets. Especially as it’s been called a haunting, beautiful landmark of Filipino cinema”.

    Free for MoMA members, $12 for the general, non-elderly public.
