MoMA Presents: Wojciech Has’s The Noose and How to Be Loved

April 27, 2017–May 03, 2017

The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters

Pawel Pawlikowski, director of the Academy Award–winning Ida, has called Wojciech Has (1925–2000) “a completely unrecognized genius, probably the most talented Polish director since the war, with his own sensibility and vision.”

Celebrating the publication of Annette Insdorf’s Intimations: The Cinema of Wojciech Has (Northwestern University Press, 2017), MoMA presents the New York premiere theatrical runs of Has’s feature debut, The Noose (1958), an expressionistic portrait of an alcoholic at the end of his rope; and How to Be Loved (1963), a chamber piece involving a famous radio actress haunted by her wartime past. Insdorf, a professor of film at Columbia University’s School of the Arts and moderator of the Reel Pieces series at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y, will introduce the opening-night screenings on April 27, and will also sign copies of her book on May 3 at 6:00 p.m.     

Organized by Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art. Presented in association with The Adam Mickiewicz Institute (Grzegorz Skorupski) and the KADR Studio, Warsaw. Special thanks to Hanna Hartowicz, New York Polish Film Festival; and Tomek Smolarski, Polish Cultural Institute New York.
