Cinema Series: Films by Robert Frank
Three short films by Robert Frank, Paper Route (2002), I Remember (1998), and C’est Vrai (1990), distributed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Manohla Dargis of the New York Times has called Robert Frank “one of the most important and influential American independent filmmakers of the last half-century.”
In Paper Route, the artist joins the delivery man on his daily job in wintery Nova Scotia. Mr. Frank plays the pioneering photographer Alfred Stieglitz as he reenacts a visit to his home in I Remember. Finally, he takes viewers on an excursion through New York’s lower-east side in C’est Vrai.
The MFA Cinema Series is free with MFA admission.
