New films this fall at the National Gallery of Art include: The Creation of Meaning, The Summer of Flying Fish, Kandahar Journals, Counting, Wondrous Boccaccio, and Hockney. In October, the Gallery is pleased to welcome artists Robert Beavers and Ute Aurand who discuss their work and present fourteen of their evocative short films. A retrospective devoted to the groundbreaking American experimental filmmaker Maya Deren is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. The spotlight is also focused on a number of other filmmakers featured in a variety of retrospectives: Agnès Varda, Wojciech Jerzy Has, and Frederick Wiseman. New restorations include The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (a copresentation with the American Film Institute), Rocco and His Brothers, Jane B par Agnès V, Strange Victory (a rarely seen film by Leo Hurwitz), and three films by the aforementioned Polish master filmmaker Has. The Rajiv Vaidya Memorial Lecture this year is devoted to a centennial celebration of Technicolor. In November, Gillian Anderson conducts members of the National Gallery Orchestra in a performance of the original musical score for D. W. Griffith’s Way Down East, while further musical events include pianists Andrew Simpson, Donald Sosin, and Gabriel Thibaudeau accompanying works of presound cinema. In December, Twenty-Five Years of Milestone Film, copresented with the American Film Institute (AFI), honors the independent distribution company that for a quarter-century has been reviving interest in lost and neglected titles. Finally, please note that in addition to screenings at the East Building Auditorium, several Friday evening screenings take place at the American University and AFI (locations are noted with each event).

Films are shown in original formats whenever possible. Seating for all events is on a first-come, first-seated basis unless otherwise noted. Doors open thirty minutes before show time. For more information, visit, e-mail [email protected], or call (202) 842-6799.
