"True Cinema: Vlada Petric on Slavko Vorkapich" Event

The Museum of Modern Art

This event has ended.

Slavko Vorkapich (1894-1976) was both a major film theoretician and a distinguished Hollywood practitioner of his own famous theory of montage editing. His forty-year career in Hollywood included providing montage sequences for such directors as Howard Hawks, George Cukor, and Frank Capra. Vlada Petric, a fellow Serbian and one-time student of Vorkapich's, was a scholar-in-residence at the MoMA Film Study Center while working toward NYU's first PhD in cinema studies. Petric went on to be the first curator of the Harvard Film Archive and an internationally acclaimed scholar, filmmaker, actor, and raconteur. Tonight, Petric screens and discusses several examples of Vorkapich's work, and presents the New York premiere of his own tribute to his mentor, "Symphony of Hands."
