NEW YORK, NY.- As part of the monthly exhibition
ContemporAsian, MoMA showcases films that get little exposure outside of their
home countries or on the international festival circuit, but which engage the
various styles, histories, and changes in Asian cinema.
Presented in
special weeklong engagements, the films in the series include recent independent
gems and little-seen classics. ContemporAsian is organized by Jytte Jensen,
Curator, Department of Film, with William Phuan, independent curator, and the
assistance of Laura Rugarber, Department Assistant, Department of Film, The
Museum of Modern Art.
