Making the Scene

The current Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) exhibition features Dante Ferretti: Design and Construction for the Cinema, which we cannot wait to see.  The premise of the exhibition, as MoMA’s description makes clear, is that Ferretti, who was born in 1943 and at age 17 began working as a production assistant on films by the director and writer Pier Paolo Pasolini, represents the end of a “100-year-long tradition of full-scale, studio-built environments for films.” Ferretti’s work includes Scorsese’s Hugo, Interview with a Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, and Scorsese’s Kundun, to name just a few. For more on the exhibit visit MoMA’s website.
