  • Hapax Legomena I–VII

    1971–72. USA. Directed by Hollis Frampton. Rarely screened in its entirety, Frampton's seven-part meditation on cinematic representation has been newly restored through a major cooperative effort funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation, and undertaken by MoMA, Anthology Film Archives, the New York University Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program, and Bill Brand, professor in the NYU program and project conservator. Described by some as Frampton's Ulysses, this landmark cycle of films includes seven distinct works: (nostalgia), Poetic Justice, Critical Mass, Traveling Matte, Ordinary Matter, Remote Control, and Special Effects. Presented with one fifteen-minute intermission.
