The Whitney Museum of Art is presenting five documentaries by the radical American filmmaker Emile de Antonio this weekend (April 1 – 3.) Each film will be introduced by a filmmaker or scholar, and IMA alumna Iva Radivojevic will be introducing one of the documentaries on Saturday.
The series will culminate with a conversation on Sunday afternoon featuring filmmaker and de Antonio collaborator Mary Lampson, Doug Kellner, editor of The Emile de Antonio Reader, and Donna De Salvo, senior curator who organized the series. This three day screening series highlights the films of Emile de Antonio, one of the most important political filmmakers in the United States during the Cold War. The program is co-organized by Donna De Salvo, Deputy Director for International Initiatives and Senior Curator, and Laura Poitras as part of a series of public events, lectures, and talks organized in tandem with Laura Poitras: Astro Noise.
