Here and There: Journeying through Film

August 16, 2023 – August 23, 2023

The Museum of Modern Art

What is summer other than a time of becoming? This wide-ranging selection of contemporary films from around the world, all drawn from MoMA’s collection, chronicles states of transformation and transit. Whether exploring the relationship between a person and their surroundings, revealing how bonds are tested or can deepen far from home, or seizing on the poetic potential of coming into one’s own, these works expand on storylines quintessential to the summer film. Encompassing fiction, documentary, and experimental forms, this series brings critical engagement and imagination to journeys both emotional and physical, offering new favorites to delight and inspire before the first cool nights settle in.

Organized by Sophie Cavoulacos, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

Film at MoMA is made possible by CHANEL.

Additional support is provided by the Annual Film Fund. Leadership support for the Annual Film Fund is provided by Debra and Leon D. Black, with major contributions from The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art, Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP), The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, and Karen and Gary Winnick.
