CHRONIK DER ANNA MAGDALENA BACH

1

CHRONIK DER ANNA MAGDALENA BACH (1968) was the debut feature of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, and “the strangest and most uncompromising of all musician biopics… [It] disregards most conventions of costume drama to ask some very human questions about history, [and] what it takes to be an artist.” — Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

The 50th anniversary restoration is playing an exclusive engagement at the Quad Cinema.

 

CHRONIK DER ANNA MAGDALENA BACH, through Thursday, March 22.
