More about the event:
The New York-based independent film production company Borderline Films was founded in 2003 by NYU Tisch graduates Antonio Campos, Sean Durkin, and Josh Mond. Their inventive and atmospheric films are marked by emotional intensity, strong visual style, and mesmerizing and revealing performances. This year, Borderline has received acclaim for Christine, starring Rebecca Hall in an unforgettable performance as Christine Chubbuck, the Florida news reporter who killed herself on air, and for The Eyes of My Mother, the one-of-a-kind horror film that was a standout at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Museum of the Moving Image will present a seven-film retrospective that will include all of Borderline’s feature films, with the New York premiere of The Eyes of My Mother with director Nicholas Pesce in person and a special screening of Christine with star Rebecca Hall in person.
“With the critical acclaim around Rebecca Hall’s performance and Antonio Campos’s direction of the highly topical character study Christine, and the New York premiere of the mesmerizing thriller The Eyes of My Mother, this seemed like a good time to recognize the impressive body of work produced over the past decade by Borderline Films,” said David Schwartz, the Museum’s Chief Curator.
All screenings take place at Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35 Avenue, Astoria, NY. Tickets for The Eyes of My Mother and Christine are $15 ($11.25 Museum members at select levels). Tickets for all other films are $12 with discounts for students and seniors and free for Museum members at select levels.
