Michael Almereyda Films at the Museum of the Moving Image

From August 21 through September 20, Museum of the Moving Image will present Michael Almereyda Here and Now, a recent career retrospective featuring four of the director’s most memorable 21st-century visions — William Eggelston in the Real World, Experimenter, Marjorie Prime, and Escapes — and a collection of rarely shown shorts. The retrospective coincides with the release of his latest film, Tesla, which stars Ethan Hawke and Kyle MacLachlan, on August 21.

The prolific Almereyda has long challenged viewers with detailed, observant, and idiosyncratic portraits of the previously uncharted emotional depths of photographers, scientists, philosophers, and others who exist at a cross-point between tradition and the future, between the technological and the physical.

All films in Michael Almereyda Here and Now will stream online via Virtual Cinema platforms. Tickets for individual programs are $3.99. A discounted series pass may become available. For more information, visit movingimage.us/almereyda.
