Right on time for Valentine’s Day, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) will launch their new series Programmers Notebook: On Love. On Love is the first in a recurring series in which members of the film and programming team at BAM respond to thought-provoking themes. This week’s theme of course is love.
From February 14–21, BAM will present 15 films that cover the theme of love in all its forms: “romantic, familial, fraternal, self-love, love of nature, love as passion, love as pain, and everything in between.” The series will open with Gina Prince-Bythewood’s Love & Basketball (2000). Also included in the program are Pedro Almodóvar’s Bad Education (2004), Wim Wenders’s Paris, Texas (1984), Steven Spielberg’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001), Daniel Day Lewis’s Phantom Thread (2017), and much more.
The series is collaboratively programmed by BAM’s Associate Vice President of Film Gina Duncan, Senior Repertory and Specialty Film Programmer Ashley Clark, Repertory and Specialty Film Programmer Jesse Trussell, and Repertory and Specialty Film Programs Coordinator Natalie Erazo.
The full schedule can be found here, with links to purchase tickets for each individual film.
When: February 14–21, various times
