MoMA Presents: Barbet Schroeder’s The Venerable W.

January 04, 2019–January 10, 2019

Posted on December 13, 2018

Barbet Schroeder opens To Save and Project, MoMA’s 16th annual festival of film preservation, with a weeklong theatrical run of his most recent documentary, The Venerable W. (2017). A grimly fascinating portrait of the sectarian conflict that continues to rage in Myanmar, Schroeder’s film centers on Ashin Wirathu, the Burmese Buddhist monk who has been accused of fomenting anti-Muslim violence through his incendiary sermons, appearing on the cover of Time Magazine as “the face of Buddhist terror.” The Venerable W. completes Schroeder’s self-described “trilogy of evil,” which began in 1974 with General Idi Amin Dada: A Self Portrait, followed in 2007 by Terror’s Advocate.

Organized by Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art. Special thanks to Cindi Rowell, Julia Mettenleiter, and Olivia Predite.
