Modern Cinema

Co-presented by SFFILM and SFMOMA, Modern Cinema is an ongoing series of film exhibitions exploring the dynamic forces interacting between cinema's past and present.

Past seasons of this program have included: The Criterion Collection/Janus Films and Apichatpong Weerasethekul, which paired classics from the Criterion/Janus catalog with films by master Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethekul; and Werner Herzog and Ecstatic Truth, a program that screened seminal Herzog works alongside films that similarly tread the line between fact and fiction.

The next season of the series, which pairs filmmakers Jean-Pierre Melville and Johnnie To, begins in July 2017.
