Watch: MoMI’s Trailer for the 2022 First Look Festival
With the 2022 edition of Museum of the Moving Image’s First Look festival beginning on Wednesday, the series has just dropped a trailer — a brisk 1-minute+ showing the range of this year’s selections. The First Look schedule now includes a number of recently announced additions, including a screening of Jenny Perlin’s documentary Bunker followed by a discussion with the film’s producer, the well-known critic A.S. Hamrah; Deniz Tortum and Kathryn Hamilton’s single-channel video installation Our Ark (now viewable in the gallery); and Charlie Shackleton’s single-viewer VR experience As Mine Exactly.
Also, there are a number of films in the program from Eastern Europe, including Putin’s Witnesses and Donbass, and proceeds from the latter are going to the International Coalition for Filmmakers at Risk. (The aforementioned two new films are part of the Second Look section — highlights from the first decade of First Look — and screen this weekend along with titles including Almayer’s Folly.)
Pictured above is this upcoming Wednesday’s opening night film, Murina. For the full program, check out the site.
