Body of Work: A Madonna Retrospective in NYC
On the occasion of their week-long run of landmark documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare, Metrograph – the unique experience of stepping into a special, curated world of cinema harkening back to the great New York movie theaters of the 1920s, will celebrate Madonna‘s celluloid career with selections from her unique body of work from August 27 to September 1, 2016.
BODY OF WORK: A MADONNA RETROSPECTIVE
Iconoclast, provocateur, pop-priestess, showgirl, Madonna’s film roles are extensions of her self-perpetuating, highly-stylized brand: street savvy disco punk, comic book gangster’s moll, and insatiable femme fatale. She is the auteur of her singular oeuvre, both the Svengali and muse of her enigmatic persona. Her calculated, cohesive canon embodies a 20th Century Narcissus who elicits adoration and antipathy equally. Ultimately, the most captivating role she ever plays is Madonna. All titles will be paired with select Madonna music videos.
The run-up includes:
- Truth or Dare (Q&A with Alek Keshishian moderated by Chelsea Handler)
- Dick Tracy
- Body of Evidence
- Shadows and Fog
- Dangerous Game
- A League of their Own
- Desperately Seeking Susan
- Who’s That Girl
Metrograph is at No.7 Ludlow Street, New York NY 10002.
