Richard Linklater’s much-anticipated “Boyhood,” which was filmed over 12 years, is a continuation of the director’s fascination with time. In honor of the film, IFC Center will host a series of film screenings, all of which focus on the role between people and time.
Beginning July 4th and lasting until the 11th, IFC Center will host “Time Regained: Cinema’s Present Perfect,” showing 36 films. Among these are all eight Harry Potter adaptations, “The 400 Blows, “Citizen Cane,” “Groundhog’s Day” and Linklater’s own “Before” trilogy.
“Time Regained” will finish up on July 10 with special screenings of two films, Gabe Klinger’s upcoming “Double Play,” which is a glance at the almost thirty-year friendship between Linklater and experimental filmmaker James Benning and a sneak preview of Linklater’s “Boyhood.” The “Boyhood” screening will feature a Q&A with the director and star Ellar Coltraine.
