The Museum of the Moving Image has announced the 11th edition of the First Look film festival from March 16 – March 20!
“First Look 2022 will take place in the Museum’s two theaters, with filmmakers appearing either in person or via live video.
Opening Night, on Wednesday, March 16, presents the New York City premiere of Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović’s Murina, a simmering, sexually charged coming-of-age tale set in scenic coastal Croatia that won the Caméra d’Or (Best First Feature) at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and was executive produced by Martin Scorsese, preceded by the New York premiere of Tsai Ming-liang’s sorrowful ode to Hong Kong, The Night. The Closing Night selection, on Sunday, March 20, is the New York premiere of Pawel Lozinski’s delightful and insightful documentary The Balcony Movie. Recipient of the Grand Prix at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival’s Critics Week (Semaine de la critique), the film was shot entirely from the balcony of Lozinski’s Warsaw apartment, which proves to be a uniquely advantageous perch for encountering the struggles and moods of the times.
Moving outside the traditional cinema space, two works by First Look alums will be presented in the Museum’s galleries: Deniz Tortum and Kathryn Hamilton’s Our Ark in the Video Screening Amphitheater and Charlie Shackleton’s As Mine Exactly, a live virtual reality experience.”
