Film About a Father WhoLynne Sachs: Between Thought and Expression coincides with the Virtual Cinema release of her new feature “Film About a Father Who”
January 13–31, 2021

New York, New York — Mixing documentary and experimental modes of filmmaking, the Brooklyn-based filmmaker Lynne Sachs has produced a celebrated body of work that spans more than 30 years. In her earliest films, she experimented with classical avant-garde techniques to explore both the body and the material of film itself; in recent years, Sachs has incorporated live performance and observational documentary to address personal and historical experiences—all while looking at the world through a feminist lens. Museum of the Moving Image will present the 20-film retrospective Lynne Sachs: Between Thought and Expression from January 13 through 31, 2021. The career-ranging survey, all presented online, will include Sachs’s acclaimed new film Film About a Father Who, which opens in MoMI’s Virtual Cinema on January 15.

Docs Against Gravity NYC runs exclusively online December 9–16, 2020

New York, New York (November 19, 2020) — Few national cinemas have authored and challenged definitions of nonfiction film more persistently than Polish cinema. From Marcel Łoziński and Krzysztof Kieślowski to Anna Zamecka and Michał Marczak, the legacy of Polish nonfiction is long and consistently dynamic, led by both observational and narrative impulses, anthropological rigor and hybridized transgression. Founded nearly two decades ago, Millennium Docs Against Gravity (MDAG) has developed into the largest documentary film festival in Poland, and thus, thanks to the volume and consistently high quality of Polish nonfiction, one of the most important documentary festivals in the world. From December 9 through 16, Museum of the Moving Image and the Polish Cultural Institute New York will co-present five recent highlights from the MDAG Festival in the series Docs Against Gravity NYC. The films will be viewable exclusively online and available to audiences throughout the United States.
