1967, 89 mins. Directed by Éric Rohmer. With Haydee Politoff, Patrick Bauchau, Daniel Pommeureule. In his first color film, featuring cinematographer Nestor Almendros’s crisp, lucid images, Eric Rohmer explores the ethical and erotic dilemmas of two male friends from the avant-garde art world who are summering in St. Tropez and trying to resist the charms of a bikini-clad young “collector” of men. The most spontaneous of the Six Moral Tales series, La Collectionneuse was written in collaboration with the actors.

1969, 110 mins. Directed by Éric Rohmer. With Jean-Louis Trintignant, Françoise Fabian. A pious Catholic who lives by Pascal’s wager that there is everything to win and nothing to lose by living as though God exists, finds his beliefs challenged when a beautiful divorcee invites him to spend a platonic night in her apartment. The snowy winter backdrop and intimate conversations are exquisitely filmed in velvety black-and-white by Nestor Almendros.

Museum of the Moving Image and The Motorola Foundation + Literary Tuesday Reading with open mic to follow


After-School Program Will Benefit Girls from Underserved Communities in Queens and Brooklyn

ASTORIA, NY, July 20, 2009 – Building on students’ fascination with visual storytelling, computer animation and video games, Museum of the Moving Image will offer its Future Lab after-school program in select New York City public schools during the 2009-2010 school year, helping spark an interest in computer science among young women from underserved New York City communities.

A newly announced Innovation Generation grant of $50,000 from the Motorola Foundation will enable Moving Image to offer Future Lab to some 60 young women in grades 6 through 12 at schools in Queens and Brooklyn. At the end of the 12-week course, each student will have designed her own 2D or 3D computer animation or video game—and in the process will have learned the principles and practice of working with advanced software from designers at the MIT Media Lab and Carnegie Mellon University.

“In a world that now runs digitally, it simply is not acceptable that women make up fewer than 10 percent of new undergraduates in computer science,” stated Rochelle Slovin, Director of Museum of the Moving Image. “We absolutely must get young women excited about math, science and engineering, and give them the confidence to succeed in these fields. That’s exactly what we’ve been able to do with Future Lab, thanks to our partners at the Motorola Foundation and the Young Women’s Leadership Foundation.”

The 2009-2010 Future Lab program, taught by Museum of the Moving Image educators, will be offered at the Young Women’s Leadership Schools of Astoria, Queens and Brooklyn. Students will alternate between sessions in their schools and at the Museum. Museum educators will work closely with program staff of the Young Women’s Leadership Foundation, which oversees the after-school partnerships at each of the organization’s network schools.

Education is at the core of Museum of the Moving Image mission. Each year, 30,000 middle- and high-school students and their teachers depend on the Museum's curriculum-based education programs to enrich their classroom studies. Education programs include exhibition tours, workshops, screening programs, professional development for teachers, and after-school programs for middle and high school students, including Future Lab. Online education resources provided by the Museum include the highly praised and popular website The Living Room Candidate: Presidential Campaign Commercials 1952-2008 and Moving Image Source, a website devoted to the history of film, television, and digital media, which have received more than one million unique visitors.

About Museum of the Moving Image
Founded in 1981, Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the United States that deals comprehensively with the art, technology and social impact of film, television and digital media. It houses the nation’s largest collection of moving image artifacts; screens hundreds of films annually; and offers education programs to thousands of New York City students and teachers. Its exhibitions—including the core exhibition, Behind the Screen—are noted for their integration of material objects, computer-based interactive experiences, and audiovisual presentations.

Moving Image is currently conducting part of its program off-site as it carries out its first major expansion project, designed by architect Thomas Leeser, which will double the size of the building, completely redesign the first floor and add a new theater, new galleries and an education center. When completed in 2010, the new Museum building will be ideal for showcasing the moving image in all its forms, ensuring the Museum's place—creatively, intellectually, and physically—as one of the great moving-image institutions of the world.
