Celebrate the launch of 10 books about 10 films, one for every year of the 2000s, with a series of screenings, talks and book launches.
In 2021, independent publishing house Fireflies Press will launch a new series, the Decadent Editions: 10 books about 10 films, one for every year of the 2000s. Written by some of today’s most compelling cultural critics, each book is a deep dive into a single film. These idiosyncratic studies are ambitious and insightful, yet playful and inviting.
ACMI is proud to be a publishing partner on the Decadent Editions. The series opened with Nick Pinkerton’s book on Goodbye, Dragon Inn (directed by Tsai Ming-liang, 2003) with a screening of the newly restored film and an accompanying talks program and book launch in the ACMI Shop.
Join us on Thu 3 Jun for the launch of Erika Balsom's book Ten Skies, about James Benning’s 2004 film, considered one of the great works of American experimental cinema.
