An Evening with Albert Maysles

One of America’s foremost non-fiction filmmakers, Albert Maysles who along with his brother David (1932–1987) is recognized as a pioneer of “direct cinema,” the distinctly American version of French “cinema verité.” Their seminal early films Salesman (1968), Gimme Shelter (1970), and Grey Gardens (1976) became cult classics and are still finding new rapturous audiences. On the occasion of the publication of A Maysles Scrapbook: Photographs/Cinemagraphs/Documents, Maysles screens selections from filmed portraits of Orson Welles, Marlon Brando, and Truman Capote, and takes audience questions.

Hammer Screenings are free. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
