Dir. William Klein, France, 1969, 35mm, 92 min.
William Klein’s absurdist parody of American values follows the titular hero as he attempts to thwart a communist invasion of Europe in the most bombastic and outrageous way possible. Frighteningly ahead of its time, Mr. Freedom dares to imagine a world where American global dominance becomes a surreal comic book fever dream.
Broadway by Light
Dir. William Klein, US/France, 1958, 35mm, 12 min.
A scintillating choreography of illuminated advertising signage, Broadway by Light captures the postwar excesses of American capitalism at its grandest.
