A groundbreaking book when it was published in 1974, Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art is an exhilarating and mind-expanding catalogue of hundreds of films that break aesthetic, sexual, and ideological boundaries. Vogel (1922-2012) was one of the most influential film programmers of the 20th century, as the founder of the avant-garde film club Cinema 16 and the co-founder of the New York Film Festival. He taught generations of cinephiles and filmmakers to take risks and to appreciate a wide range of films from all over the world. In celebration of Vogel's life's work, this series features a selection of iconic films from Film as a Subversive Art, bringing together works that elucidate through provocation, joy, and transgression, each a testimony to the power of cinema and of Vogel's unique vision.

Venue Description: Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media.
