The IFC Center tributes filmmaker Bette Gordon with special in-person screenings of her films Luminous Motion, Variety, and her latest release called Handsome Harry. One of the most prominent artists to emerge out of the "No Wave Cinema" underground 1970's film movement in Tribeca/East Village, she has since won several awards and worldwide festival acclaim. Gordon teaches film at Columbia University's graduate film division in NYC, is supervisor of the Columbia directing program, and was one of the founders of Tribeca's first theater- the Collective for Living Cinema.
