Series Descriptions

Spring 2014 ArthouseFW programming is divided into four distinct series.

Cinemuse Series

Taking place during Lone Star Late Night at The Modern, the ArthouseFW – Cinemuse Series presents a pair of filmmakers whose artistic visions inspire each other’s creativity. The first program in this series will feature the celebrated director John Carpenter and his go to action hero, Kurt Russell. Together these filmmakers have created some of the most iconic films and characters from the 80s and 90s. The Modern bar will stay open until show time, allowing audiences to grab a drink or two before the film rolls. Join the Lone Star Film Society and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for a late night series that is sure to keep you awake.

Samurai Series

The ArthouseFW – Samurai Series presents select films that highlight the unique and poetic life of the Samurai. Each film explores a new perspective of life as a warrior, whether the battle is for life, love or upholding the strict expectations of society. The series will play alongside the Kimbell Art Museum’s exhibition Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection in the brand new Renzo Piano pavilion. This installment of ArthouseFW is presented by the Lone Star Film Society and the Kimbell Art Museum.

Silent Sundays

The ArthouseFW – Silent Sunday films present the visionaries of early cinema who pioneered film and narrative techniques, shifting movies from a simple means of entertainment to a serious artistic medium. Each film in this series will be presented alongside unique live musical accompaniment in the Kimbell Art Museum’s Renzo Piano pavilion. This installment of ArthouseFW is presented by the Lone Star Film Society and the Kimbell Art Museum.

Auteur Series

The first installment of the ArthouseFW – Auteur Series emphasizes the Spanish director Luis Buñuel’s surreal criticism of society throughout his career. The selections highlight Buñuel’s stylistic coherence that has defined him as one of the most accomplished auteurs in cinematic history. The series will play at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as part of an ongoing partnership with the Lone Star Film Society.
