Museum fetes Zeitgeist’s 10th

Haynes and Madden to present

The American Museum of the Moving Image will celebrate Zeitgeist Films’ 10th anniversary with a retrospective of the indie film distributor’s releases on Saturday and Sunday.

Founded by Nancy Gerstman and Emily Russo, Zeitgeist has distributed the work of Atom Egoyan, Peter Greenaway, Todd Haynes, Abbas Kiarostami, Yvonne Rainer and the Brothers Quay.

“Zeitgeist Films has distinguished itself among major and independent distribution companies by its discriminating selection of provocative, artistically accomplished films,” said David Schwartz, chief curator of film and video at the Queens-based museum.

Decade of films

Haynes, his producer Christine Vachon and Guy Maddin are among the filmmakers who will introduce features, shorts and trailers during the series, “The Spirit of the Times: Ten Years of Zeitgeist Films.”

Among the films that will screen in the Zeitgeist retrospective are Jennifer Montgomery’s autobiographical drama “Art for Teachers of Children,” Derek Jarman’s biopic “Wittgenstein,” Olivier Assayas’ film-within-a-film “Irma Vep,” starring Maggie Cheung, and Jacques Demy’s “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,” the Catherine Deneuve starrer that was re-released by Zeitgeist in 1996.
