SCREENING

In Jackson Heights

Sunday, Oct 21, 2018 at 7:00 am

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Frederick Wiseman. 2015, 190 mins. Digital projection. In English, Spanish, and Arabic with English subtitles. The teeming diversity of Jackson Heights, and Queens, is the subject of Frederick Wiseman’s critically acclaimed documentary. As with the finest of his films, Wiseman has created a kaleidoscopic and novelistic view of his subject, here showing the many ways that people form smaller communities within a larger, chaotic world. Manohla Dargis in The New York Times called it “a thrilling, transporting love letter from Frederick Wiseman to New York and its multi-everything glory.”

Tickets: $15 ($11 seniors and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / free for children under 3 and Museum members at the Film Lover and Kids Premium levels and above). Order tickets online. (Members may contact [email protected] with questions regarding online reservations.)
