Five of the filmmakers greatest works screen in 35mm
After BAM's complete retrospective this summer, godfather of American independent cinema John Cassavetes returns by popular demand. This series collects five of his greatest works, all screening in 35mm.
As a director, Cassavetes led his stable of fearless actors—Peter Falk, Ben Gazzara, Seymour Cassel, and, especially, wife Gena Rowlands—into hitherto uncharted cinematic territory, portraying raw human emotion with radical realism and penetrating insight. His films are guided not by conventional narrative technique, but by the rhythms and interiority of everyday life.
