About Us:

MoMA presents the 16th annual edition of To Save and Project, a festival dedicated to celebrating newly preserved and restored films from archives, studios, distributors, foundations, and independent filmmakers around the world. This year’s festival kicks off with a tribute to Barbet Schroeder (Tricheurs, Reversal of Fortune, Single White Female) through all of his documentary films. Schroeder presents his so-called “trilogy of evil”: General Idi Amin Dada (1974), Terror’s Advocate (2007), and the New York premiere theatrical run of The Venerable W. (2017). He also introduces new digital preservations of Koko: A Talking Gorilla (1978), The Charles Bukowski Tapes (1985), and three rarely screened anthropological shorts made in 1971 in Papua New Guinea during the shooting of his fiction film The Valley (Obscured by Clouds).

Other festival highlights include special guest appearances by Peggy Ahwesh, Wolf-Eckart Bühler, George Griffin, Barbara Hammer, Yvonne Rainer, and Arturo Ripstein; “The Great Victorian Moving Picture Show”—two illustrated lectures of astonishing large-format 68mm Mutoscope and Biograph shorts from the late 19th century—as well as an illustrated lecture on color innovations in British silent cinema; Michael Anderson’s spy thriller The Quiller Memorandum (1966), written by Harold Pinter and starring Alec Guinness, George Segal, and Max von Sydow; an exceedingly rare screening of André de Toth’s Crime Wave (1954) in a pristine 35mm print struck from the original camera negative, together with two merciless (auto-)portraits of the film’s leading actor, Sterling Hayden, made at the end of his life; and the North American premiere of MoMA’s own restoration of Ernst Lubitsch’s Forbidden Paradise (1924), in association with The Film Foundation. The festival concludes with the world premiere theatrical run of MoMA’s new restoration of Ida Lupino’s melodrama Never Fear (The Young Lovers) (1950).
