Great Director Series. March 2008.The Miami Beach Cinematheque (MBC) at Espanola Way in Miami Beach presents its monthly series "Great Director" and this month will be dedicated to the extraordinarily independent British director Peter Greenaway. His complex work as an artist is seen in his stunning perfectionism in visual and conceptual style, displayed in his eccentric and controversial cinematic works from his early shorts, which will screen throughout the retrospective, to the remarkable new works in digital experimentation.
At the moment when the remote control hit the world’s living rooms (1983), he declared "the end of cinema" as we know it, and welcomed new alternative technologies. He remains on the cutting edge of the "new cinema" and beyond, embracing digital capacities, and the remarkable VJ experience to expand cinema horizons. The MBC retrospective is a chance to see several decades-worth of Greenaway's legendary classic creations.
