Joris Ivens's international reputation was established with the release of
The Bridge in 1928 and over the next sixty years he was one of the most
widely traveled film directors, working in places as diverse as Eastern
Europe, Southeast Asia, Cuba, China, Mali, and Chile. Beginning on March
20, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, European Foundation Joris Ivens
(EFJI), and Red Diaper Productions will present CINEMA WITHOUT BORDERS: THE
CINEMA OF JORIS IVENS, a long-anticipated retrospective featuring six new

director. An exhibition of rare photographs, the publication of a
catalogue, and a symposium on the filmmaker's work will take place in
conjunction with the series, which runs through March 28 at the Walter
Reade Theater.

A selection of rarely exhibited photos by and about Ivens from the
extensive collections of the EFJI will be on view in the Roy and Frieda
Furman Gallery at the Walter Reade Theater throughout the retrospective.

A symposium on Ivens's work, with leading film scholars and special guest
Marceline Loridan, will take place in the Furman Gallery of the Walter
Reade on Saturday, March 23, and a series catalogue will be available then.
