Nina Menkes Retrospective: Filmmaker In Person!

To celebrate her six feature film, Anthology Film Archives presents a comprehensive retrospective devoted to independent filmmaker Nina Menkes. The filmmaker will be in person.


HITPARKUT (Dissolution) combines an almost surreal fairy-tale energy with brutal black and white realism to explore the condition of violence which permeates contemporary Israeli society. Shot is Yafo (the predominantly Arab area of Tel Aviv), the movie follows the moral collapse and first glimmer of redemption, of a young, morose Israeli Jew, played brilliantly by Israeli actor DIDI FIRE

Select Quote About Nina

"In the 25 years since her first feature...Nina Menkes has remained one of the few American directors whose feature films -- in both form and thought -- are genuinely radical. Menkes's main preoccupation across her six [feature] films...is violence in all its forms, and her approach, oblique yet intuitive, has yielded results that have more to say on the subject than any American director since Peckinpah or Cassavetes." -- Phil Coldiron, LA WEEKLY
