NYC Weekend Watch is our weekly round-up of repertory offerings. On the subject of Metrograph’s “It Happens to Us,” we also encourage donations to local abortion funds, while the theater will be donating 50% of all proceeds from ticket sales towards NARAL Pro-Choice America and additional U.S. reproductive rights orgs.
Museum of the Moving Image
Emma Myers has curated “It Happens to Us,” a look at stories of abortion on film; films by Rossellini Nicholas Ray screen in “Metrograph A to Z“; with the release of Lux Æterna, Gaspar Noé has curated a series of witches onscreen, while if you’ve ever wanted to see Bulletproof Monk on 35mm we recommend “Hong Kong Goes International” (but might suggest Irma Vep first); films by Bette Gordon and John Waters play in a series on Cookie Mueller.
Anthology Film Archives
Johnnie To’s The Heroic Trio and Isao Takahata’s early feature Panda! Go Panda! play in restorations as the Gaspar Noé retrospective continues; the new restorations of INLAND EMPIRE and Mississippi Masala continue; Mulholland Dr., Perfect Blue, Scanners, and Raw have late-night showings.
