Professor Annette Insdorf Publishes New Book

April 17, 2017

Film Faculty Annette Insdorf published Intimations: The Cinema of Wojciech Has through Northwestern University Press this month. The book is being celebrated with related screenings at the Museum of Modern Art.


MoMA presents the New York premiere theatrical runs of Has's feature debut, The Noose (1958), an expressionistic portrait of an alcoholic at the end of his rope; and How to Be Loved (1963), a chamber piece involving a famous radio actress haunted by her wartime past. Insdorf, a professor of film at Columbia University’s School of the Arts, and moderator of the "Reel Pieces" series at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y, will introduce the opening-night screenings on April 27, and will also sign copies of her book on May 3 at 6:00 pm.
