Museum of the Moving Image Showcases Currators' Choice Films of 2021

Thuso Mbedu in Barry Jenkins's THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD (2021); screening as part of Curators' Choice 2021

The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens will be screening the best films of 2021, hand picked by their curators. The Curators’ Choice 2021 series runs from December 19 2021 to January 16, 2022. The films were  selected by Curator of Film Eric Hynes and Assistant Curator Edo Choi, with 30 selections spanning family friendly fare (The Mitchells Vs The Machines), to the daring and taboo (Benedetta, The Underground Railroad).

“The first iteration since 2019, following a pandemic-dictated hiatus, Curators’ Choice 2021 evidences a year of stunning ambition, excellence, experimentation, irreverence, liberation, and fury. While 2021 was a challenging year for the movies, with Hollywood and audiences gradually returning to theaters, it’s been a wildly exciting time for international, independent, and festival-oriented films,” said Hynes.

The series also offers the opportunity to revisit four films the Museum previously released in Virtual Cinema and present them in a theatrical setting: Shatara Michelle Ford’s Test Pattern (with Ford in person), Midi Z’s Nina Wu, Lili Horvát’s Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time, and Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese’s This Is Not a Burial, It's a Resurrection.

  • Terra Femme
    Dir. Courtney Stephens
  • Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time
    Dir. Lili Horvát.
  • The Underground Railroad: The Complete Series
