40 Years of Film
4 February 2010
Congratulations to Karen Cooper on 38 years of building NYC’s venerable art house cinema, Film Forum! The Museum of Modern Art is honoring Karen/Film Forum with a special exhibition of documentary films that have premiered at FF, curated by Karen. The program opened last night and goes through Feb 20.
(FF is celebrating 40 years; Karen took over in its third year, in 1972. I worked with Karen for about four years doing fundraising for FF.)
If you’re not a NYC-dweller, you must certainly make time for a matinee or opening night at FF next time you’re in town. Both the new films and repertory programs are invariably fantastic. Where else can you see an unforgettable film about an old Korean man and his ox?
