Suspiria. 2018.
Directed by Luca Guadagnino
Friday, December 7, 7:00 p.m.
The Museum of Modern Art, New York

Suspiria. 2018. Italy/USA. Directed by Luca Guadagnino. 152 min.

Luca Guadagnino’s reimagining of Dario Argento’s iconic 1977 film is as fearless, bold, and lush as its predecessor. Amid unrest in a divided Berlin in the late 1970s, American Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) is admitted to Helena Markos’s world-renowned dance company. Unbeknownst to Susie, a mysterious force appears to have taken hold of many dancers in the company, causing unexplained psychological trauma and grotesque physical ailments. Simultaneously lurid and gorgeous, Guadagnino’s approach is as artful and delicate as his previous work, but uniquely embraces the darkness of the original film.

Mikael Olsson stars as Agent Glockner in Suspiria.

The screening is part of The Contenders 2018.
Through January 8, 2019.
Every year there are films that resonate far beyond a theatrical release—if they manage to find their way to a commercial screen at all—or film festival appearance. Their significance can be attributed to a variety of factors, from structure to subject matter to language, but these films are united in their lasting impact on the cinematic art form. For this annual series, the Department of Film combs through major studio releases and the top film festivals in the world, selecting influential, innovative films made in the past 12 months that we believe will stand the test of time. Whether bound for awards glory or destined to become a cult classic, each of these films is a contender for lasting historical significance, and any true cinephile will want to catch them on the big screen.
Organized by the Department of Film MoMA.
