Its insightful selections offer a thesis: the epochal efflorescence of cinematic invention of the French New Wave that burst onto the scene in the late fifties and early sixties was matched—and, in some ways, foreshadowed by, and even influenced by—the burst of movie creativity from New York’s independent filmmakers of the era..."
Now through Thursday, January 31
