This monthly series brings a prominent artistic or cultural figure to BAM to discuss the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank

 
Diva

Dir. Jean-Jacques Beineix
With Frédéric Andréi, Wilhelmenia Fernandez, Richard Bohringer
1981, 117min, 35mm

 

This ultra-stylish, cooler-than-cool French thriller became one of the cult sensations of the 1980s and helped kick off the filmmaking movement known, appropriately enough, as the cinéma du look. Unfolding against an eye-popping, colorfully modernist vision of the Paris underworld, Jean-Jacques Beineix’s debut feature follows a young postman as he stumbles headlong into a shadowy conspiracy involving secret tapes, an opera singer whose voice has never been recorded, and a murder.

 
Slumlord Rising

Dir. Alan Palomo
2015, 8min

 

The music video for Neon Indian’s single “Slumlord” is an electric blue and pink-spattered sci-fi-horror hallucination set to a disco beat.
