Chris Marker Photography Exhibit & Screenings in NYC
The Peter Blum Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of photography by Chris Marker: Staring Back. The exhibit is almost 200 photographs taken over the course of six decades by the enigmatic and influential French filmmaker. This show, organized by Bill Horrigan at the Wexner Center for the Arts, is the first exhibition of Marker's photographs, and consists of images selected by the artist himself from his own archive, including black-and-white portraits of individuals that Marker has encountered during the course of his world travels.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery will present a selection of Chris Marker films, including THE CASE OF THE GRINNING CAT, on October 4, 11 and 18 at 7pm in their Chelsea gallery location.

Guzmán Urzúa Wins Best Director Award
Camila Guzmán Urzúa won the prize for Best Director for THE SUGAR CURTAIN at the Santiago Film Festival in Santiago, Chile last week. Urzúa documents her journey back to her childhood home in Cuba to revisit the so-called “golden age” of her childhood, while her memories contrast with the backdrop of present-day reality for her friends who stayed behind and those who left.

Anthology Film Archives, September 5!

Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzman began filming the saga of his country's political turmoil in 1973. From the bloody, U.S.-backed coup d'etat that overthrew the democratically-elected Salvador Allende, his suicide, and then to years living under the dictator General Augusto Pinochet until his final arrest. Guzman's films, beginning with THE BATTLE OF CHILE, have become an epic record of political cinema, unparalleled in the history of cinema.

SALVADOR ALLENDE kicks of a series of screenings that will be the first time the complete sequence of Patricio Guzmán’s films tracing this history has been screened in the U.S. The series includes, in addition to SALVADOR ALLENDE, the three-part THE BATTLE OF CHILE (1975-1978), CHILE, OBSTINATE MEMORY (1997) and THE PINOCHET CASE (2001). More information on times and tickets at Anthology Film Archives.
