60S VERITE AT FILM FORUM


THROUGH THE FILMS OF THE 1960S WE CAN SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AROUND KUBRICK AS HE WAS MAKING 2001. HOW IS 2001 A PRODUCT OF ITS TIME? MAYBE WE CAN GLEEN SOME INSIGHT THROUGH THE VERITE OF THE 60S. STANLEY HAD ALREADY MADE LOLITA IN 1962 AND DR. STRANGELOVE IN 1964. 

"Cinéma-vérité is a cinema not of mere observation but of immersive engagement. It fuses investigation with self-revelation, presence with performance—and, above all, it turns its participants into self-aware performers, both behind and in front of the camera. The Film Forum series displays the first wave of cinéma-vérité in its vast variety.” 
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
