We’re proud to welcome New York-based filmmaker Bette Gordon with special in-person screenings of her acclaimed features VARIETY and LUMINOUS MOTION. Gordon’s new film HANDSOME HARRY opens on April 16th.

A pioneer in the American independent film world and one of the most notable artists to come out of the Tribeca / East Village “No Wave Cinema” underground 1970′s film movement, Gordon is best known for her bold explorations of themes related to sexuality. Her early short experimental films won numerous awards and festival acclaim worldwide, including showings at the Berlin International Film Festival, The Museum of Modern Art and The Whitney Biennial. VARIETY (1984) marked her debut as a feature film director, and was presented in The Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious Director’s Fortnight. LUMINOUS MOTION, Gordon’s next feature, opened to rave reviews in 2000, and HANDSOME HARRY, her latest film, had its premiere at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival and is being released by Paladin in select cities April 16th. A long time resident of Tribeca, Gordon is also one of the founders of the Collective for Living Cinema, the neighborhood’s first theater, an outpost of avant garde cinema which was located on White Street. In addition, Gordon has been teaching new generations of students about the movie craft as a Professor of Film at Columbia University’s graduate film division in New York City, and serves as the Supervisor of the directing program there.
