Robert Zemeckis Retrospective Set for Museum of the Moving Image, 10/26-11/4
Academy Award-winning® director Robert Zemeckis has been at the helm of some of the most entertaining, inventive, and critically acclaimed movies of the past three decades, including Romancing the Stone, the Back to the Futuretrilogy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Forrest Gump, and Cast Away.
On the occasion of his latest film, Paramount Pictures’s Flight, which Peter Travers of Rolling Stone has said “Flight is Zemeckis at his most emotionally open and thematically provocative,” the prolific filmmaker will be joined by the film’s screenwriter John Gatins, and stars Denzel Washington and John Goodman for a special Q&A on Monday, October 29 as part of the Museum of the Moving Image’s four-film retrospective of Zemeckis’s work, taking place October 28 through November 4, 2012.
“As dazzling as his films can be, they are also marked by a mastery of cinematic language, and surprising emotional depth,” said Chief Curator David Schwartz. “His latest film, Flight, is both an action thriller and an intense and deeply moving character study with a bracing, audacious performance by Denzel Washington.”
The special screening of Flight, will take place at The Ziegfeld and is by invitation only. Museum members may reserve tickets by calling718 777 6800. To learn about Museum membership and to join, go online to http://movingimage.us/support/membership or call 718 777 6877.
