It has become the stuff of retro consumerism and “Mad Men” shtick, but in the mid-sixties New York City was the cultural capital of the United States, and David and Albert Maysles were among its chief chroniclers. From a radical Yoko Ono performance at Carnegie Hall to a portrait of an ascendant IBM's upstate headquarters, after having just decamped from their Madison Avenue office, to a drop-in visit with Truman Capote at his Long Island retreat, and an indelible encounter with Marlon Brando in a Midtown hotel room, these short documentaries capture both the official history and something else, the unguarded moments and unscripted gestures that are the true warp and woof of a historical scene.

IBM: A Self-Portrait (1964, 35 min)
Cut Piece (1966, 8 min)
With Love from Truman (1966, 29 min)�
Meet Marlon Brando (1966, 29 min)

Conversation to follow, speakers to be announced.

This event is part of the second season of our nonfiction film series, «Smile, It’s Your Close Up: New York's Documentaries,» co-programmed with Jessica Green and Edo Choi of the Maysles Documentary Center, which zooms in on key moments, individuals, and communities to pose the question: “What makes New York New York?” See the full series here: mcny.org/smile

— $15 for adults | $12 for seniors, students, and educators (with ID) | $10 for Museum and Maysles Documentary Center Members

Ticket includes Museum admission and beer courtesy of Harlem Blue.
