The second in a series of exhibitions running over three years, 'Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 stories of craftsmanship in film' celebrates stories of obsessive workmanship behind some of cinema's most iconic and compelling on-screen moments. The exhibits, presented this year at Museum of the Moving Image, offer the opportunity to view rarely-seen artifacts, as well as behind-the-scenes research notes, sketches, video interviews, and materials used in the development process by ten of the world's greatest filmmakers. The exhibition, curated by Michael Connor, will be accompanied by selected film screenings in the Museum's main theater.
