With a new year soon upon us, and a new awards season in full swing, all eyes turn toward the Oscars! Throughout much of January, Museum Films will give viewers the chance to catch up with the year’s biggest contenders and revisit 2019 favorites on the big screen.
January welcomes critical juggernaut and audience favorite, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s latest scintillating bit of historical revisionism starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and some Oklahoma kid named Brad Pitt, who looks poised to compete for the Best Supporting Actor prize. Museum Films is also excited to present Best Actress frontrunner Renee Zellweger in Judy, a celebration of one of the twentieth century’s greatest entertainers, Judy Garland.
This January, Museum Films will also welcome back OKCMOA hit Parasite, a surefire Best International Film nominee (and winner), and a big contender elsewhere, including in the Best Director and Best Screenplay categories—where it also received Golden Globe nominations. Catch this extremely likely nominee, and others to be announced, beginning January 9th.
If Oscar isn’t exactly your thing, or if you’re looking for a break from awards season, Museum Films is also very proud to present a trio of outstanding OKCMOA exclusives. The extremely engaging and exceedingly accomplished Temblores (Tremors), a Spanish-language festival favorite from Guatemala, explores the conflict between queer desire and evangelical values in that deeply Christian Central American society.
In 63 Up, veteran filmmaker Michael Apted returns to the same group of British men and women for the ninth installment of his legendary ‘Up’ documentary series. Filled with clips from the earlier episodes that all feature the same group of seven to sixty-three year-olds in seven year increments, 63 Up is a monumental cinematic portrait of human personality and economic privilege.
Directed by one of French cinema’s most iconic and original voices, 2017 honorary Oscar®-winner Agnès Varda (who passed away earlier this year), Varda by Agnès marks another major achievement in non-fiction filmmaking. This candid cine-essay explores the filmmaker’s incredible seven-decade career with the filmmaker present to narrate every step in her truly one-of-a-kind journey. Could there be a better way to usher in another seasonal celebration of the very best of the seventh art?
