Tomorrow Night at MoMA: An Evening With Marc Forster

Some of you have already gotten this in email, but tomorrow night (Tuesday, 4/12) is the fourth annual installment of A Work In Progress, where MoMA's Film & Media department celebrates a distinct directorial voice in cinema.

This year's honoree is Marc Forster who will be talking with legendary post-structuralist film scholar Will Ferrell about his work (Finding Neverland, Everything Comes Together, that scene in Monster's Ball). There will be many celebrity guests [not counting me; I'll be working it so hard, you couldn't call me a guest], which I'm pretty sure means Johnny Depp and Heath Ledger doing their infamous mashup skit, Finding Balls. No idea what that means.

Here's a pdf [300k] of the invite, or you can call MoMA's Special Events office: Tel. (212) 708-9680, fax (212) 708-9429,


  • The Sniff Forster's Cologne section: $375 [very limited number left sold out]
  • The Catch A Glint Off His Dome section: $200 [ditto sold out]
  • The Share A V.I. Bowl Of Dip With Sean Combs afterparty: $150 [pack'em in, baby]
  • Hear a party-only guy utter the phrase "typically Swiss mise-en-scene" to try and convince the ladies that he was at the discussion: priceless

  • Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
