eggleston documentary to premiere at moma

at the new moma:

William Eggleston in the Real World. 2005. USA. Directed by Michael Almereyda. An intimate portrait of William Eggleston, who revolutionized color photography in the mid-1970s and who continues to conjure spellbinding images from the ordinariness of everyday life. “Peter Schjeldahl has written that Edward Hopper was ‘excited by the unguarded moment, the exposed innocence, of a person, a building, a place.’ If you equate ‘innocence’ with ‘mystery,’ I think you can apply this to Eggleston, and to this movie about him” (Almereyda). 87 min.

Monday, January 17, 7:30. T2; Wednesday, January 19, 6:00. T1 (both introduced by Faggioni and Almereyda)
