Special Preview Screening of Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters
Saturday, October 27
2:00 p.m. EDT
Join Zeitgeist Films at Aperture for a special preview screening of Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters before it opens at Film Forum in New York City on October 31.
An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life—moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. While the photographs are staged with crews that rival many feature-film productions, Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper, and Diane Arbus. Crewdson’s imagery has also infiltrated the pop-culture landscape—including his inimitable work for the HBO series Six Feet Under and the indie band Yo La Tengo. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters beautifully bares the artist’s process—and it’s as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves.
