Amour fou

‘Amour fou’

Opening on January 9 with Jessica Hausner’s Amour fou and running through January 18, the fourth edition of the Museum of the Moving Image’s “annual showcase for new, inventive international cinema (and more)” marks a sort of promotion, or at least an expansion. First Look is now “officially a festival,” and Chief Curator David Schwartz and Assistant Film Curator Aliza Ma have announced “a programming partnership with FIDMarseille, the cutting-edge documentary festival directed by Jean-Pierre Rehm.”

And then there’s this: “First Look 2015 will feature a unique film/installation piece by artist/filmmaker Jane Gillooly in which the audience watching her film Suitcase of Love and Shame (U.S., 2013, 70 mins.) during the first weekend of First Look will be filmed, thus becoming the subject of a new film, which will make its World premiere the following weekend. The one-of-a-kind Suitcase, which premiered at FIDMarseille in 2013, and was shown at Lincoln Center earlier this year, chronicles an illicit love affair as told between lovers on exchanged audiotapes—a collection Gillooly bought on eBay.”
