MoMA Presents - Guillermo del Toro: Tales of Mourning and Imagination
The Museum of Modern Art will present the film series Guillermo del Toro: Tales of Mourning and Imagination at The Museum of Modern Art screening January 4th through January 29th. Titled after Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination, a major influence on the director, this retrospective presents theatrical releases and television series directed by del Toro, along with others he wrote and produced.
A storyteller who has experimented across a wide range of genres, from big-box action, sci-fi, and superhero movies, to horror and crime thrillers, to visionary art films, del Toro is a filmmaker of distinctive vision. Using fantastical visuals—makeup and special effects often play a central role in conveying emotion—and dark thematic undertones, he analyzes the complex relationship between fathers and sons, death and mourning, and the beauty of monsters. This in-depth exploration of interpersonal relationships and quest for greater social understanding will be on display throughout the duration of this specially curated film series.
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
