The Film Benefit included a cocktail reception in MoMA’s Agnes Gund Garden Lobby, a special presentation in MoMA’s Titus Theater recognizing Bigelow’s acclaimed directorial work, and a formal dinner in MoMA’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium (photo). The event has been concluded with an after-party featuring a special acoustic performance by the acclaimed Canadian indie rock band Metric, followed by DJ sets by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Nate Lowman.

In June 2011, MoMA will present a RETROSPECTIVE OF KATHRYN BIGELOW’s entire career with screenings of all of her feature films, including the Academy Award-winning film The Hurt Locker (2008), K-19: The Widowmaker (2002), The Weight of Water (2000), and Strange Days (1995). In conjunction with the retrospective, the Museum has acquired Bigelow’s paper archive, which documents all of her film projects from Set-Up to The Hurt Locker, from pre-production research through production notes to post-release publicity and press materials. The archive contains both process and creative documentation such as storyboards, scripts, filming schedules, location scouting reports, and casting notes. The collection also includes unrealized scripts and other projects.
