Robert Altman (1925-2006) was, during his long filmmaking career, one of Hollywood’s mavericks—never concerned with popular tastes or prevailing trends. Despite this, he made some of the most enduring films of the 1970s and 80’s and was able to carve out a niche, resulting in a long, sometimes turbulent, wildly varied career. As Ron Mann’s documentary portrait shows, Altman influenced much of today’s American filmmaking landscape, with critics often deploying the term “Altmanesque” to describe films that hit a distinctly American nerve. Screens with three of Altman’s rarely screened early shorts: THE KATHRYN REED STORY (1965), POT AU FEU (1965), and THE PARTY (1965). (122 mins.)
ALTMAN screens Friday, January 16 at 7pm, Saturday, January 17 at 4:30pm, and Sunday, January 18 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).
Tickets are available online or at the door.
