ON THE ROAD: AMERICA BY CAR

montana 2008 33 c lee friedlander

In connection with the exhibition dedicated to the renowned American photographer Lee Friedlander taking place at the Amsterdam Photography Museum (FOAM), I’ve been invited to curate a film program dedicated to American road movies.
Presented in collaboration with EYE Film Institute Netherlands, the program will present an overview of this quintessential American film genre through four iconic modern classics: BONNIE & CLYDE, VANISHING POINT, BADLANDS, THELMA & LOUISE.
Each film will be introduced by a special guest, providing an extra critical dimension to the films or to the work of photographers who have chosen ‘the road’ as the subject of their gaze.
