...a journey to Middle-earth

The Museum of the Moving Image is the country's only museum dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image in all its forms.

Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum’s second and third floors, Behind the Screen reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum’s collection of the material culture of the moving image.

3-D Lenticular Posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Director Peter Jackson filmed The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 3-D at 48 frames per second to invite the audience to enter Middle-earth for an immersive cinematic experience. Emblematic of this experience is a series of specially commissioned lenticular posters, featuring seventeen of the main characters in the film, including Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield, Gollum, and Galadriel. These posters are being shown only in specialized showcases.



With Joana Preiss in person

France. Dir. Joana Preiss. 2011, 82 mins. With Preiss, Bruno Dumont.

Filmed entirely by Preiss and her then lover, Dumont, mostly in the claustrophobia of a train car on the Trans-Siberian Railway, Siberia is an intense and raw observation of a relationship’s denouement. With unflinching honesty and a Direct Cinema approach, Preiss’s documentary is a fascinating psychological exploration of love, dependency, and the bounds of romantic privacy.


Films are free with museum admission.

For those of you who wish to continue the evening in good company, meet again at the end of the film right outside of the theater.
Dinner at:

Leng Thai & Asian Cuisine
3309 Broadway
Astoria, NY[masked]

    Interesting twist on a documentary....which at the end seemed like it could have just been an avenue to present fiction, on a very ow budget. It was interesting that the museum woulld choose a first time filmmaker also. Overall entertaining, but not very educational or informative, which is typical for a documentary. It was a memorable film though.

    It was very French I think. I admire Joana Preiss' fortitude and discipline bringing this project to fruition.
