From 25 May through 3 September 2017 Eye Filmmuseum showed an extensive exhibition on the work of Martin Scorsese.
This video registration intends to give an impression of the exhibition and was commissioned by Eye Filmmuseum.
Martin Scorsese (1942), the director of such classics as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Hugo and The Wolf of Wall Street, has over time developed a unique style of filmmaking. The son of Italian immigrants, Scorsese grew up in Little Italy, New York, and his films paint a vibrant portrait of this close-knit community. Relationships between his characters – with soulmates Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio often in the leading roles – are marked by mistrust, fear and betrayal. Violence is a key theme, as is the quest for spirituality.
This first exhibition devoted entirely to Scorsese illuminates his work and life. A number of key film fragments are projected on large screens in the exhibition. Accompanying these are over 400 objects and documents taken from the personal collections of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. [Text: Eye Filmmuseum]
