Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.

No Restraint serves as a fascinating "making of" document, capturing artist Matthew Barney at work on his massive Drawing Restraint 9 project and revealing how the soundscapes Bjork composed for the film influenced the direction of the endeavor.

Note special ticket prices.
Called "the most important American artist of his generation" by the New York Times, Barney is perhaps best known for his films The Cremaster Cycle and Drawing Restraint 9. This documentary isn't subtitled "Everything You Wanted to Know About Matthew Barney But Were Afraid to Ask," but it does give a context to the symbolism behind Barney's beautiful but baffling films. (video, 72 mins.)
