The Museum of Modern Art Presents Modern Matinees: In Celebration of Adrienne Mancia
The Museum of Modern Art will present the film series Modern Matinees: In Celebration of Adrienne Mancia screenings at The Museum of Modern Art from November 1 through December 22.
When Adrienne Mancia (1927–2022) joined MoMA’s Department of Film in the mid-1960s, it began a 34-year career that witnessed the end of the Hollywood studio system, the growth of independent and experimental filmmaking, the rise of repertory-style programming, and the development of an international film festival circuit. The exhibitions she organized as a curator reflected her engagement with this history, her unbound enthusiasm for the genres that gave it form, and her support for the artists who shaped it. This series features 27 films and filmmakers that Mancia championed, including work from Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, India, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Russia, and the United States. As a close colleague once noted, “If only a little of Adrienne’s unmatched passion for cinema rubbed off on you, it was enough to fuel your career.”
