Helmers receive museum retrospectives

AMMI fetes Burton Nov. 8-19, Coppola Nov. 22-Dec. 14

In November, the American Museum of the Moving Image will turn its spotlight on directors Tim Burton and Francis Ford Coppola.

A retrospective of Burton’s career will unspool Nov. 8-19 at the Museum. Coppola will be saluted Nov. 22-Dec. 14.

Burton series will kick off with his first studio success, 1985’s “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.” Other titles in the program include animated shorts “Vincent” and “Frankenweenie” and his most recent effort, “Planet of the Apes.” It will wrap up with a sneak peek at forthcoming Columbia release “Big Fish” and feature a discussion with the helmer.

“Burton is the brilliant creator of fanciful movies that express both the bright and dark sides of his boundless imagination,” said David Schwartz, who organized the series and will moderate a discussion with Burton.

Although Coppola will not be on hand for Q&A, his entire body of work — with the exception of “One From the Heart”– will screen at the museum.

Series will commence with “Dementia 13” (1966) and “You’re a Big Boy Now” (1966) and finish off with “Apocalypse Now Redux.”

This year, AMMI has also presented career retrospectives of directors Ang Lee and Roman Polanski. Other forthcoming events include screenings of “House of Sand and Fog” with stars Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly, and “In America” with director Jim Sheridan.
