MUBI x Little White Lies come together to bring you a series of screenings and panel discussions, held at the Little White Lies screening room. Each event will coincide with the special release of a film on MUBI for 30 days.
This month, watch the Cassavetes retrospective online at MUBI then join us at Little White Lies on 31st March for a screening of his debut film SHADOWS followed by a discussion of the influential director’s work. John Cassavetes is one of those names that constantly crops up in film criticism about other films, such is the breadth of his influence on modern cinema. MUBI are celebrating the work of this late master, and so LWLies want to offer specific focus to his sparkling, handmade debut feature from 1959. While films like Jean-Luc Godard’s A Bout de Souffle and François Truffaut’s Le 400 Coups were being celebrating for their use of real locations, arrhythmic editing, live sound and hand-held camerawork, Cassavetes had already been there and done that on the streets of New York City with Shadows. Join us for a post-screening a panel discussion where we’ll expand upon Cassavetes' influence on modern filmmaking.
