The second in a series of exhibitions running over three years, PERSOL MAGNIFICENT OBSESSIONS: 30 stories of craftsmanship in film celebrates stories of obsessive workmanship behind some of cinema’s most iconic and compelling on-screen moments. The exhibits, on view this year at Museum of the Moving Image, offer the opportunity to view rarely seen artifacts, as well as behind-the-scenes research notes, sketches, video interviews, and materials used in the pre-production process by ten of the world’s greatest film artists. They include Ed Harris, Todd Haynes, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Ennio Morricone, Arianne Phillips, Vittorio Storaro, Hilary Swank, Dean Tavoularis, and Douglas Trumbull. The exhibition, curated by Michael Connor, will be accompanied by selected film screenings in the Museum’s main theater.
