Cruel and Unusual Comedy Reprised
March 1–16, 2012

When our upcoming "Euroclowns" series – Cruel and Unusual Comedy, Part 3: Selections from the Eye Film Institute, The Netherlands programs – were all set in the MoMA screening calendar, we were asked by Rajendra Roy, senior curator at MoMA Department of Film, if we could choose a few programs from our 2009 and 2010 series to fill out the beginning of March in the Bartos Theatre.  What a great idea – a full one-month run of Cruel and Unusual Comedy!
