TrustMovies: George Gittoes’ THE MISCREANTS OF TALIWOOD makes MoMA debut; Q&A 

Every so often — but not nearly often enough — comes along a film that single-handedly defines what the name TrustMovies and the site itself hopes to accomplish: putting you in touch with films that do things other media can’t or won’t, in the process offering up the truth of our world (part of it, at least) in a manner you’ll not find elsewhere. Just such a film is making its New York debut with two screenings during MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight (February 18 at 8pm in MoMA’s Titus 1 theater and February 19 at 4pm in Titus 2).
