Alex Ross Perry has established himself as one of the preeminent independent filmmakers, and the Museum of the Moving Image, located in Astoria, Queens, will honor him with a retrospective. The event will run from August 22-25 and include a screening of all four of his films, including his latest, “Queen of Earth,” with Perry and star Elisabeth Moss in person.
“Alex Ross Perry’s two most recent films feature unforgettable and vivid performances—most notably Elisabeth Moss’s daring portrayal of emotional despair in the astonishing ‘Queen of Earth,'” said Chief Curator David Schwartz. “The Museum is pleased to offer New Yorkers an opportunity to catch up on an impressive body of work by this unique emerging talent who has incorporated his love of cinema into his own original vision.”
The films will be screened in order of when they were released, with “Impolex” on Saturday, August 22 at 4:30pm; “The Color Wheel” and “Listen Up Phillip” on Sunday, August 23, at 3pm and 5:30pm, respectively; and “Queen of Earth,” which has yet to be released, on Tuesday, August 25 at 7:30pm.
