The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is honoring director Kathryn Bigelow with a mid-career retrospective of her work, up to and including The Hurt Locker (2008), for which she became the first women to win an Oscar for directing. Entitled Crafting Genre: Kathryn Bigelow, the retrospective takes place from June 1 through August 13, 2011, and includes exhibits of scripts and other memorabilia, as well as screenings of Bigelow’s eight features.
As writer, director and producer, Bigelow, born in 1951, has received numerous honors, including AWFJ’s 2008 EDA Award for Best Director for The Hurt Locker.
The retrospective begins with a screening of The Loveless (1982) and the premiere of the 35mm preservation of Set-Up (1978), with Bigelow in attendance to introduce the film and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
