Hugo

Directed by Martin Scorsese
2011, 126min, DCP

 

Scorsese’s valentine to the moving image follows a wide-eyed young orphan (Butterfield) as he unravels a mystery involving an automaton and silent cinema pioneer Georges Méliès (Kingsley). The breathtaking art-direction brings the 1930s Paris train station setting vividly to life in this spirited adventure tale, which doubles as an impassioned plea for film preservation.

"No other work of art has demonstrated so explicitly how gears, springs, shutters, wheels, and tracks can generate wonders."
—David Denby, The New Yorker

 
Twelve Tales Told

Directed by Johann Lurf
2014, 4min, DCP

 

This thunderous mash-up of Hollywood production company logos turns ubiquitous corporate iconography into an entrancingly bombastic fanfare for a movie that never comes.
