A Brief Auteurist History Hiatus

Duel in the Sun. 1946. USA. Directed by King Vidor

As you’ve probably noticed, it has been a few weeks since the last An Auteurist History of Film post. The column’s author, curator Charles Silver, is currently taking a brief hiatus, but his weekly musings on film history and auteur theory will resume shortly.

In the meantime, MoMA’s ongoing An Auteurist History of Film screening series continues. Upcoming films include King Vidor’s Duel in the Sun (1946) (September 28–30), Robert Rossellini’s Paisan (1946) (October 5–7), Charles Chaplin’s Monsieur Verdoux (1947) (October 12–14), and more.

We hope to see you in the theaters.


The most important and impressive retrospective MoMA has ever done and all the screenings continue to be on weekday afternoons (with a brief exception last year). Please make this series available to a wider audience by re-showing it in the evening hours and/or on weekends.
