Film has the capacity to mirror—and manipulate—reality like almost no other medium. As part of the exhibition Ordinary Madness, experience two nights of film drawn from the museum’s extraordinary collection of works from the 1960s and 1970s. Some of these vintage prints haven’t been screened in decades and may not be seen again for years to come.
The films in this program highlight the junction-disjunction between art and life, and plumb the divide between reality and its distortion in myth, desire, and individual perception. Some even turn the camera on itself, reflecting on the very process of filmmaking.
