Celebrated Argentine author and filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky made his North American cinematic debut with Dot Dot Dot (1971) in the very first New Directors/New Films festival, in 1972. Cozarinsky returns to MoMA with a Carte Blanche selection that juxtaposes classic and contemporary Argentine cinema in fresh and provocative ways. For example, a 1930s musical drama paired with a subversive theater improvisation from the late 1960s, or a 1950s noir about a child murderer paired with a recent coming-of-age drama about a different form of child abuse. Cozarinsky will introduce many of the programs, together with the scholar and archivist Fernando Martín Peña.
New York: June 6 - 24 at MoMA.
