The Film Society will present a one-week exclusive theatrical run of Thom Andersen and Noël Burch’s Red Hollywood, the groundbreaking documentary about the men and women whose careers were destroyed by the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s, along with a selection of films by blacklist casualties—subversive period epics, lean and morally complex noirs, and snappy, class-conscious comedies—chosen by Andersen himself.
The Film Society is proud to present the most complete American retrospective to date of this major, criminally underseen Filipino master, timed to the release of his latest film, Norte, the End of History. The series launches with a rare screening of his seven-and-a-half-hour Melancholia (2008) and continues with one screening a month through February 2015.
