The Battle of Chile. 1975. Directed by Patricio Guzman. Courtesy Tricontinental Film Center/Photofest © Tricontinental Film Center

Organized in conjunction with Transmissions: Art in Eastern Europe and Latin America, 1960–1980, these screenings present an eclectic selection of rarities from MoMA’s film collection. Ranging from documents of live actions and “moving sculptures” originally acquired as a part of the landmark 1970 exhibition Information, to gems of Eastern European animation and an epic of Latin American militant cinema, these screenings indicate the varied politics and creativity of the Museum’s moving-image holdings.

Organized by Giampaolo Bianconi, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art.

Special thanks to Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film.
