I will do a Q & A with Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto (only) on Friday, March 4 after the 7 pm screening of INSTRUMENT. (This is the museum’s free night, so film tickets are also free from 4pm on; however, the museum will have long lines!)
INSTRUMENT screens again on March 5 at 4pm
History of New York is one of my very first films and very rarely shown. It’s a rather primitive, 23 minute, Super 8 film (shown on video). Click the above link for details.
