Film About a Father Who
A New York Times Critic's Pick
Dir. Lynne Sachs. 2020, 74 mins. Between 1984 and 2019, filmmaker Lynne Sachs shot 8 and 16mm film, videotape and digital images of her father, Ira Sachs Sr., a bon vivant and pioneering businessman from Park City, Utah. Film About a Father Who is her attempt to understand the web that connects a child to her parent and a sister to her siblings. With a nod to the Cubist renderings of a face, Sachs’s cinematic exploration of her father offers simultaneous, sometimes contradictory, views of one seemingly unknowable man who is publicly the uninhibited center of the frame yet privately ensconced in secrets. A Cinema Guild Release. View trailer. Tickets: $12 ($10 MoMI members). Buy tickets.
Part of the Museum's retrospective Lynne Sachs: Between Thought and Expression, Jan. 13–31.
A New York Times Critic's Pick
Dir. Radu Ciorniciuc. Romania/Germany, 2020, 86 mins. In Romanian with English subtitles. Winner of the Special Jury Prize for Cinematography at Sundance, Acasă, My Home brings viewers intimately into the life of a Romanian family of eleven who are in the process of being displaced from their home in an urban park so that it can be transformed into a biodiversity habitat. This feature debut by Romanian investigative journalist Radu Ciorniciuc places the city of Bucharest in the background to forefront the ways that the Enache family exists on the outskirts of society, ghostlike, living independent of social and government structures, until their lifestyle is abruptly forced to change. With tenderness and transparency, the film reflects on what is gained and what is lost. A Zeitgeist Films Release in association with Kino Lorber. View trailer. Tickets: $12. Buy tickets. 

Dir. Jerry Rothwell. United States/United Kingdom, 2020, 82 mins. Based on the best-selling memoir by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of non-speaking autistic people from around the world. "An inventive, sensuous documentary worthy of its source. As emotionally piercing as it is beautiful to behold." —Guy Lodge, Variety
