Performance details

Each weekend features a different film program that extends the exhibition's reconsideration of Surrealism as a true “movement” across boundaries of geography and chronology, recasting appreciation of this revolutionary, emancipatory, and globe-spanning idea. The films explore the collective concerns that animated Surrealism, as well as the historical and national distinctions that characterized regional cinema.

How to attend

Advance registration is not required. The event will take place at The Met Fifth Avenue’s west facade, inside Central Park near the Obelisk.
