Screening lineup to include 'Days,' 'Castle'
The Museum of Modern Art’s film screening lineup for the rest of 2005 will include the New York premiere of Gus Van Sant’s “Last Days” and the North American premiere of Hayao Miyazaki’s “Howl’s Moving Castle.”
Lineup also includes a Killer Films retrospective in September, a Pixar retro and exhibit beginning Dec. 14, a Maysles brothers retro in December, and the North American premiere of a restored English-language version of Jacques Tati’s “Mon oncle.”
Premiere of the Disney-distribbed “Castle” on June 6 will be part of a MoMA retrospective entitled “Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata: Masters of Animation,” which runs June 3-30. Miyazaki won the animated feature Oscar for directing “Spirited Away” and co-founded the animation house Studio Ghibli along with Takahata.
“Last Days” premiere on July 22 will be preceded by screenings of Van Sant’s “Gerry” and “Elephant.”
