Anthology Film Archives  Preserving & presenting films made by visionaries, radicals, independents, and auteurs—with a focus on films that are overlooked, forgotten or ignored

Filmmaker Kimi Takesue is in person tonight and tomorrow for her film 95 AND 6 TO GO! “95 AND 6 TO GO is the home movie as subtle, multi-layered, self-reflexive work of art.” –Peter Keough, THE BOSTON GLOBE

The film + video dream team! Come visit Anthology and @electronicartsintermix at table R05 at @printedmatter_artbookfairs this weekend! The fair is free! We have rare Film Culture issues, Jonas Mekas’s poetry book THERE IS NO ITHACA for $5, Manuel DeLanda’s ISM ISM for $25, and lots of other deals on new and out-of-print books!

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Annette Michelson, a member of Anthology's Honorary Board, and a dear friend of Anthology for decades.

Her influence on film culture—as a scholar, educator, and champion of avant-garde film—will continue to be felt for generations.

Don't miss AUDRE LORDE ON SCREEN, Sept 17 – 20!

This series brings together three documentaries that celebrate the life and work of Audre Lorde, the self-described Black, lesbian, feminist, socialist, warrior, poet, mother. These films are both an excellent introduction to her work and a rich resource for her longtime fans.

Holly Fisher is in person tonight for her experimental western BULLETS FOR BREAKFAST at 7:00PM!

Then stick around for THE BELLE STARR STORY, one of the few Spaghetti Westerns starring – and possibly the only one directed by – a woman, Lina Wertmüller!

WOMEN OF THE WEST continues through the 16th!

Spanning the early days of cinema all the way to the 21st century, and encompassing a number of films written and directed by women, this series aims to construct a narrative indicating the varied roles women played in shaping this country and more broadly the ways that the film industry has told stories of our western foremothers.

Coming up in the series:
Holly Fisher's BULLETS FOR BREAKFAST
Lina Wertmüller & Piero Cristofani's THE BELLE STARR STORY
Monte Hellman's THE SHOOTING
Wesley Ruggles's ARIZONA
Ferdinando Baldi's RITA OF THE WEST (aka CRAZY WESTERNERS)
Maggie Greenwald's THE BALLAD OF LITTLE JO
Kelly Reichardt's MEEK’S CUTOFF

Acclaimed Austrian filmmaker Johann Lurf joins us in person for his new film, ★, an extraordinary found-footage film that gathers images of the night sky from over 550 films spanning cinema history.
This film is a must-see for cinephiles, and we're very pleased that Lurf will be in person for these screenings, tonight at 5:30 and tomorrow at 7:30!

Johann Lurf will also present a program of his earlier short films as part of our “Show & Tell” series today,
Sat, Sept 8 at 8:00!

Presented with generous support from the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.

THOMASINE & BUSHROD is the Blaxploitation Western you’ve always dreamed of but never knew existed. A counterpart to BONNIE & CLYDE, it stars Vonetta McGee and Max Julien as Thomasine and Bushrod, who wind up playing Robin Hoods, stealing from wealthy whites and giving to poor southerners.
See it today at 6:45 in WOMEN OF THE WEST!

THE GOOD TIME GIRLS
(2017, 15 min, digital. With Laura Dern, Garret Dillahunt, and Alia Shawkat.)

Holly Fisher's experimental, feminist western, BULLETS FOR BREAKFAST, screens on 16mm on Saturday at 4:45 in WOMEN OF THE WEST! “Fisher constructs the film along the twin axes of visual sophistication and hand-made aesthetics – it’s both beautifully meticulous and gorgeously frayed.”
—Cameron Bailey, film critic & currently artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival

Writer/director Maggie Greenwald will be in person for a Q&A after tonight's 9:15PM screening of THE BALLAD OF LITTLE JO!
Abandoned by her family as an unwed mother and sold as a prostitute to soldiers by a traveling salesman, Josephine Monaghan (Suzy Amis) decides to live as a man. As “Jo,” she settles in the shabby mining town of Ruby City and becomes a frontiersman.
The film screens on 35mm!
