The new virtual film series from Emory Cinematheque explores generations of filmmakers who advance the medium in radical ways. The online screenings are offered free to the public. “New Cinematic Directions” features six films curated by Emory’s honors student Evan Amaral. He, along with Emory film and media studies professor Matthew Bernstein, joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes to discuss the selections.
“As a department, we’re very committed to the exhibition of films, whether they’re classics or, as Evan has selected, films that never played in Atlanta,” said Bernstein. The film series runs through March 19, with open Zoom conversations after each screening in the series.
