1. The Distributor: @arrowvideo
Arrow Video is a godsent organization actually reviving celluloid in the 21st century, reincarnating classic B-Movies as handy-dandy DVDs and Blu-ray. Its Instagram bio professes a penchant for "classic, world, cult, horror" genres, and its account is a pure reflection of those tastes. Follow for screencaps of every b-movie you've skipped over because it was too hard to find.
2. The Art Collector: @buio_0mega
This account deals exclusively in the art and illustrations that adorn the VHS covers of, as they describe them, "Retro/Cult/Obscure/Underrated/Forgotten/Giallo/Horror Films." Do you need to know more? No way!
3. The Cinema: @anthologyfilmarchives
Like most theatre accounts, Anthology Film Archives' Instagram is a visual analog for its upcoming schedule, but it's unique in the artistry it manages to retain. An eye for angles and color, for showcasing its more obscure offerings, and for providing winky tidbits of information give AFA's account a boost that makes it eminently worth the follow.
This weekend, in our #EntangledForms series we are screening the 3+hour version of Jean Rouch's PETIT A PETIT. Rarely screened and unavailable in the full nearly 4 hours on DVD, the film is credited as an important influence on Jacques Rivette’s OUT 1. Other films in the series include Med Hondo's SOLEIL Ô, Godard's ALPHAVILLE, and Abderrahmane Sissako's BAMAKO. Full series details on our website!
Tomorrow night is our quarterly Members-Only screening! It is FREE and open only to Anthology members. We will be screening a print of Ingmar Bergman's THE RITE! Shot almost entirely in Dreyer-esque close-ups, on bare sets that call attention to the theatricality of the venture, THE RITE is a black-and-white black hole that collapses a decade’s worth of cinematic exploration into 72 tense, claustrophobic minutes. Shown at the New York Film Festival in 1969, but otherwise rarely seen apart from Bergman retrospectives, THE RITE will screen from a 35mm print that rescues the stark beauty of Sven Nykvist’s cinematography from the clutches of the small screen.
