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.
