The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is a unique institution dedicated to promoting engagement with the moving image in all of its forms. The ACMI building is (rather appropriately) located right in the heart of Melbourne – in Federation Square just across from Flinder’s Street Railway Station.
From 26 May to 18 September, ACMI will be premiering an exhibition titled SCORSESE (an Australian exclusive), which pays tribute to and encourages audiences and attendees to engage with Martin Scorsese, the celebrated American filmmaker and innovate creative mind behind such films as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
26 MAY – 18 SEP
From Taxi Driver and Goodfellas to The Age of Innocence and The Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese’s intense and exhilarating films define him as one of the world’s greatest directors.
Whether it’s wolves, bulls, butchers or taxi drivers, Scorsese’s complicated anti-heroes navigate mean streets of their own morality, torn between rebellion and acceptance, sin and redemption. While his characters spiral out of control, Scorsese captures every frame with masterly control.
SCORSESE, drawn from his personal collection, explores his inspirations, creative process and key collaborations, offering comprehensive insight into Scorsese’s career as an unparalleled screen stylist and a tireless champion of cinema.
SCORSESE Films and Public Programs
In conjunction with the SCORSESE exhibition, ACMI presents a mix of film and public programs that showcase, celebrate and contemplate the work of Martin Scorsese.
Beginning on Friday 27 May with the first Scorsese: Friday Night Cinema and Essential Scorsese screening sessions and special one-off events Scorsese in Focus and Stratton on Scorsese, the film and public programs schedule continues throughout the exhibition with program highlights such as interactive talk series Scorsese Film Club on selected Sundays, and a screening and talk on Scorsese’s collaboration with Mick Jagger and others with Vinyl on Tuesday 31 May.
