Requiem for a Dream: The Cast & Crew Reunite 20 Years Later

Cour­tesy of the Muse­um of Mod­ern Art: “Dar­ren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream has only grown in stature since its explo­sive debut in 2000. His har­row­ing and influ­en­tial visu­al depic­tion of addic­tion and depen­den­cy across four char­ac­ters in Brook­lyn is a film that’s still whis­pered about in tones of rev­er­ence.” To cel­e­brate 20th anniver­sary, Aronof­sky and actors Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jen­nifer Con­nel­ly, and Mar­lon Wayans reunit­ed to recon­sid­er the film and its impact on cin­e­ma and cul­ture. This vir­tu­al con­ver­sa­tion was mod­er­at­ed by Rajen­dra Roy, the Celeste Bar­tos Chief Cura­tor of Film. If you become a MoMA mem­ber, you will gain access to more spe­cial events along these lines.
