"The gatekeepers exist to be overthrown." Amos Vogel – Repeats and Responses (III)

The timespan of the third and final part of our tribute to New York film curator Amos Vogel (1921–2012) begins with his tenure as founding director of the New York Film Festival (1963–1968) and follows his work as a curator, author and film educator up until the end of the 90s. Alongside articles, correspondence and notes from Vogel’s extensive personal estate, one important reference for the film selection is his recently republished book "Film as a Subversive Art" (1974), which testifies to his conception of film and cinema running counter to the canon. (23-30 January)
