NYFF50: Cinéastes/Cinema of Our Time

NYFF50: Cinéastes/Cinema of Our Time

André S. Labarthe in person for select screenings on 10/3 and 10/4! In 1964, film critic and filmmaker André S. Labarthe, together with Janine Bazin, widow of influential film theorist André Bazin, approached the French television channel ORTF about starting a program that would resemble the long, in-depth interviews with film directors that magazines such as Cahiers du cinéma and Positif regularly published. The films made for both Cinéastes and Cinéma, de notre temps together form an invaluable history of the cinema, full of insights into the work of individual filmmakers as well as a sense of the shifts in taste and ideas about cinema.

NYFF50: Men of Cinema: Pierre Rissient and the Cinema Mac Mahon

NYFF50: Men of Cinema: Pierre Rissient and the Cinema Mac Mahon

Pierre Rissient in person for all screenings! A still-functioning movie house located in the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe, the unassuming façade of Paris’ Cinéma Mac Mahon belies its history as one of the world’s sacred sites of celluloid worship. It was there, in the early 1950s, that the future critic-publicist-programmer Pierre Rissient and his band of film-crazed friends convinced the theater owner to let them commandeer the programming, ushering in a tidal wave of American movies—especially film noirs and other genre fare—directed by the likes of Fritz Lang, Joseph Losey, Otto Preminger and Raoul Walsh.
