Carte Blanche: Edgardo Cozarinsky on Argentine Cinema

June 06, 2018–June 24, 2018

Posted on May 8, 2018

The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters

Celebrated Argentine author and filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky made his North American cinematic debut with Dot Dot Dot (1971) in the very first New Directors/New Films festival, in 1972. Cozarinsky returns to MoMA with a Carte Blanche selection that juxtaposes classic and contemporary Argentine cinema in fresh and provocative ways. For example, a 1930s musical drama paired with a subversive theater improvisation from the late 1960s, or a 1950s noir about a child murderer paired with a recent coming-of-age drama about a different form of child abuse.

In doing so, he sheds new light on Argentine cinema’s unique concerns and urgencies—whether political, sexual, or artistic—observing that “history is rewritten all the time, and film history is even more liable to reassessments, fallen idols, and heroes retrieved from obscurity. This series of Argentine films proposes an alternative to accepted film history, bringing into dialogue vintage and present- day titles that escape, hopefully, from the accepted pattern of Argentine history and not just of film history.” Cozarinsky will introduce many of the programs, together with the scholar and archivist Fernando Martín Peña.

Organized by Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film.
