This March, Cinema at the Museum celebrates Women’s History Month with a series of films from groundbreaking and innovative women directors. These films create expansive dialogues that speak to feminism, care, body, and agency, all through various lenses that focus on the experiences of women.
The winner of Sight and Sound magazine’s hugely anticipated and world-renowned Greatest Films of All Time Critics’ poll 2022, Akerman’s film seems simple, but it encompasses an entire world. Whether seen as an exacting character study or as one of cinema’s most hypnotic and complete depictions of space and time.
Film tickets are $10; free admission for members and youth under 18.
Talks, tours and other events are admission by donation or free with membership.
