Focus Features:10th Anniversary Salute

The Museum of Modern Art celebrates the 10th anniversary of Focus Features with an exhibition of 10 significant features from the film company’s remarkable first decade. Founded in May 2002 and headquartered in New York, Focus Features produces and acquires for distribution films that challenge and expand the notion of mainstream cinema and traditional narrative. Its films have been both critical and popular favorites, from one of its first releases, Roman Polanski’s The Pianist, through to its recent offerings, including Mike Mills’s Beginners. Also featured are works by such important film artists as Joel and Ethan Coen (A Serious Man), Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right), David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises), Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain), Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener), and Gus Van Sant (Milk).
