Preservation Society Dept.

The MoMA has movies! And not just any old movies, either, but awesome old movies.

Purchase on AmazonAmong the restored films: A Woman Under the Influence, a longtime favorite of mine restored to life thanks (again) to Criterion.

New preservation efforts in Asian films are represented by the restoration, at the University of California, Los Angeles, of Lester James Peries’s 1964 feature from Sri Lanka, “The Changing Village” (Nov. 11 and Nov. 12), as well as the Korean Film Archive’s rehabilitation of Kim Ki-young’s astounding thriller of 1960, “The Housemaid” (Nov. 5 and 16).

Be nice if I could make it out there to see 'em, although the Japanese samurai-art exhibition at the Met is taking precedence. I'm thinking about heading out there next weekend.
