MoMA AND CINECITTÀ LUCE CELEBRATE LEGENDARY DIRECTOR BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI WITH A COMPLETE CAREER RETROSPECTIVE
This comprehensive 20-film survey, presented in collaboration with Cinecittà Luce, Rome, celebrates the work of Bernardo Bertolucci, one of the great living practitioners of the art of cinema. All of the prints in this series are newly remastered by Cinecittà Luce, with sound and color correction overseen by several of the cinematographers who have worked with the director, including Vittorio Storaro, Darius Khondji, and Fabio Cianchetti. Featured screenings include The Conformist (1970)—a film that has deeply influenced American filmmakers as diverse as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg—and a rare presentation of Bertolucci's documentary Oil (La via del petrolio) (1967), a major rediscovery at the 2007 Venice Film Festival.
At the age of 21, Bernardo Bertolucci debuted at the Venice Film Festival with his first film, La commare secca (The Grim Reaper) (1962); he has since gone on to earn every award and accolade to which a filmmaker can aspire. Tirelessly experimental in form and content, his films have enjoyed both popular and critical acclaim. Renowned for pushing the boundaries and creating works for adventurous audiences, his oeuvre also contains its share of popular blockbusters, including The Last Emperor (1987), which garnered nine Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. Watching the films in this series together, one witnesses Bertolucci's development as an artist, from grappling with the influence of cinematic trends and filmmaking icons to developing and refining his own voice, and ultimately becoming an enormously influential auteur who creates films of beauty and consequence.
This complete retrospective also includes such revered films as Ultimo tango a Parigi (Last Tango in Paris) (1972), starring Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider; Novecento (1900) (1976) with Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, and Donald Sutherland; The Sheltering Sky (1990) with Debra Winger, John Malkovich, and Campbell Scott; Little Buddha (1993) with Keanu Reeves, Bridget Fonda, and Chris Isaak; Stealing Beauty (1996), with Liv Tyler, Sinéad Cusack, and Jeremy Irons; and The Dreamers (2003), with Michael Pitt, Eva Green, and Louis Garrel.
A full screening schedule is available at MoMA.org/film.
The exhibition is co-produced by the Department of Film of The Museum of Modern Art and Cinecittà Luce, Rome. It is organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film; Camilla Cormanni and Paola Ruggiero, Cinecittà Luce; and Alessandra Bracaglia.
Bernardo Bertolucci is supported by the Cinema Department of the Italian Ministry of Culture and by eni, a major integrated energy company committed to valuing people, environment, and integrity. Special thanks to Alitalia and the Italian Cultural Institute of New York.

Today, my friends, we saw the clearest example of our mission: to confront the culture of power with the power of culture.Despite attempts to prevent the sharing and transmission of culture, Palfest is using all the communications tools at its disposal to reach out -- for videos, photos, blogs and other Palfest updates go here. Here's a video from the opening night:
Israeli forces ended their offensive against Hamas in Gaza on Saturday, 17 January, following the declaration of ceasefires by Hamas and Israel.
Highlighted below are some of the main buildings identified as destroyed or damaged in Gaza City and the surrounding area as of 16 January, when this latest satellite image was taken.
The image, taken for Unosat at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, has helped researchers identify at least 566 destroyed or damaged buildings.
The map below shows the main areas attacked in the three weeks of violence.
Palestinian medical sources say more than 1,010 Palestinians were killed in the violence, which began on 27 December 2008. Israel says 13 Israelis died, including 10 soldiers in the campaign and three civilians killed as a result of rocket fire from Gaza.
