The Museum of the Moving Image (36-01 35th Ave, Queens, NY) is back with its annual survey of some of the best films and television of the year with its Curators’ Choice series. Organized by Curator of Film Eric Hynes and Associate Curator of Film Edo Choi, Curators’ Choice focuses on shows and films that either debuted for broadcast or premiered theatrically during the calendar year 2022. The series encompasses narrative film, documentaries, and series from around the world that reflect the strange and changing attitudes of 2022.
Works being screened include We Met In Virtual Reality, which was shot entirely within VR games and explores long distance relationships formed within these virtual spaces.
The series Irma Vep from director Olivier Assayas is a continuation of his 1996 film of the same name. Now starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander as a Hollywood star cast as the lead of the same inexplicable but heartfelt project, and Vincent Macaigne taking over for the original film’s Jean-Pierre Léaud as the director, who slowly loses it over the course of shooting.
The Croatian film Murina, directed by Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović, which won the Camera d’Or (Best First Feature) at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, is a serrated-edge, sexually charged coming-of-age tale set in scenic coastal Croatia. Amidst clashes with her oppressive father and impassive mother, restless Julija seeks liberation from their isolated existence when a visit from an old family friend creates overlapping waves of greed, jealousy, desire, and rage. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the film features gorgeous camerawork by Hélène Louvart (The Lost Daughter, Happy as Lazzaro).
The series closing includes a screening of Steven Spielberg’s coming of age journey through cinema, The Fablemans, with an in person appearance by actor Paul Dano.
