Filmmaker Jon Jost in Person!
United States | 2013 | Jon Jost
Jon Jost Is one of the most independent and resourceful of American indie filmmakers, having directed 60+ low-budget films (half of them features) in a career spanning 50 years (and the globe). Best known in the U.S. for his 1990 work All the Vermeers in New York, Jost was shown regularly at the Cinematheque in the early nineties. But when he moved oversees late in the decade, we lost track of his work. Tonight he returns to the Cinematheque, in person, to present his latest feature. Coming to Terms is the tale of a dying man (played by experimental filmmaker James Benning, a former Cinematheque guest) who summons his broken family—two sons he hasn’t spoken to in years, and their two mothers—to his side. Jost will answer audience questions after the screening.
