LOOKING FOR AN ICON Opens at Film Forum, May 9!
Tickets are available now for the upcoming limited engagement of LOOKING FOR AN ICON screening with THE DAY YOU'LL LOVE ME (El Dia Que Me Quieras). Both films examine the significance, from historical to emotional, behind iconic photographs of the last century. CBC News said of ICON, "Much more than the story of four photographs... It is also an exploration of the meaning and importance of photojournalism itself." The two-week run begins on May 9 at New York City's Film Forum.
