Three Auteurs of World Cinema

Share

Three Auteurs of World Cinema starts with six screenings of films by the highly-stylized Hong Kong director, Wong Kar-wai. In March, we move to the meditative works of Soviet/Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. And finally, throughout April and May, we'll explore the fantastical world of Italian director Federico Fellini through eight films spanning his entire career.

All film screenings listed below are FREE and held in the first floor corner room of Mid-Manhattan Library. Each program includes an introduction to the film as well as a guided discussion afterwards. Seating is first-come, first-served and doors open at 6:30 p.m.*

*Please note: the screening of Tarkovsky's The Sacrifice will begin at 6 p.m. with doors at 5:30 p.m.
