This event has ended.

This survey encompasses the scope of Nichols's directing career, from staggering early successes like "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "The Graduate," which propelled him to the top of the field when he was in his thirties; through his reemergence in the early 1980s with "Silkwood;" to such recent made-for-cable masterworks as "Angels in America" and "Wit." The exhibition begins and ends with a pair of phenomenally influential but rarely screened films— "Carnal Knowledge" and "Catch-22," respectively— and the films in between are shown out of chronological order, emphasizing their timeless sophistication. All films are from the U.S. and directed by Mike Nichols.
