Asian Cinevisions 2006

January 9–December 9, 2006


Asian Cinevisions is a new monthly series presented with Asian CineVision (ACV), a nonprofit organization that for nearly thirty years has been dedicated to promoting and exhibiting films from established and emerging artists from Asia as well as work by Asian American filmmakers. Many films in the series have had their North American premiere in ACV's popular annual New York Asian American International Film Festival; despite critical acclaim, however, few have made it to commercial theaters in the United States. This, then, is a second chance to discover exciting filmmaking with a global reach. The exhibition reflects the growing importance of Asian and Asian-American films in world cinema, and showcases their great diversity and cultural richness. The first MoMA screenings of most of the films will be introduced by a guest speaker.

Organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film, and William Phuan, Program Associate, Asian CineVision.
