Thom Andersen in person!

Following its sold-out shows at REDCAT, Thom Andersen’s newest film comes to Filmforum to give you an additional chance to dive into its delights.

One of America’s foremost practitioners of the essay film with a major new work inspired by the writings
 of Gilles Deleuze on cinema. Andersen’s The Thoughts That Once We Had (2014, 108 min.) is a richly layered journey through cinematic history, masterfully edited as it playfully moves across decades and genres, and suffused at every turn by the renowned filmmaker and critic’s lifelong passion for the movies. Andersen’s newly remastered Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003) is a modern classic, ranked among 
the 50 greatest documentaries of all time in Sight & Sound magazine’s critics poll. His other works include The Tony Longo Trilogy (2014), Reconversão (2012), Get Out of The Car (2010), Red Hollywood (1996) and Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer (1974).
