The film programme comments on and complements the exhibition. Film classics on the big screen, rarely shown archive material, exciting discoveries for cinephiles: Together the programme's five sections comprise a panorama of New York as a scene of contemporary history and the history of film.


Day Night Day Night

D: Julia Loktev, USA 2006, 94 min, OV

The first image, the first seconds, of Julia Loktev's nerve-wracking drama throw the viewer into the tense, feverish plot: A 19 year old girl makes preparations to become a human bomb targeting Times Square. At the 59th Cannes Film Festival, "Day Night Day Night" won the Regard Jeune award for young filmmakers in the Directors' Fortnight programme.
