THE MAYSLES & CO.

Through Thursday, April 21

“Remember, as a documentarian you are an observer, an author but not a director, a discoverer, not a controller.” – Albert Maysles.

For sixty years, Albert (1926-2015) and David (1931-1987) Maysles, and their collaborators (among them Susan Froemke, Charlotte Zwerin, Ellen Hovde, Deborah Dickson, et al.), epitomized “Direct Cinema” (their own term for cinéma vérité, or “fly-on-the-wall” moviemaking) to international critical acclaim, and iconic success.

Special thanks to Jake Perlin, Andrew Adair (Cinema Conservancy), Rebekah Maysles (Maysles Films, Inc.), Jennifer Bertani (WNET), Sara Bernstein (HBO), Jonathan Hertzberg (Kino Lorber), Sara Maysles, Laura Coxson, Michael Chaiken, Nelson Walker, Lynn True, Sean Price Williams, Peter Gelb.
