“If cinema was a painting, time would be the paint itself.” – Richard Linklater

In honor of the opening of Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking, twelve-year portrait BOYHOOD (“the latest and most accomplished of Mr. Linklater’s cinematic meditations on the nature of time” – A.O. Scott, New York Times), IFC Center takes a look at cinema’s great, inevitable subject. Preserver of lost people and places, film also captures the passage of minutes and hours and offers a vision of what might come. This series explores the ways the movies both respect the limitations of time and upend them, from real-time narratives and decades-spanning fiction and documentary series, to chronology-scrambling flashbacks and time-travel fantasies.

Running concurrently with the sidebar series Harry Potter: Hogwarts and All (featuring all eight Potter films, Jul 4-10) and Time Travelers (Friday and Saturdays at midnight, through Aug 2).

Antoine-a-thon Sun Jul 6: see all four of Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel features (plus the short Antoine & Colette) in order for just $30 ($20 IFC Center members)
