Last year at one of MoMA’s important documentary programs, a then-new film from Australian filmmaker George Gittoes made its New York debut. TrustMovies was bowled over by it (still is) and devoted his lengthiest post yet to the film and to Mr. Gittoes, who is shown in the photo above.  (You can read that post here.) Starting today at New York’s Anthology Film Archives, a seven-film retrospective of Mr. Gittoes’ work is being shown over three days — November 4 -6.  If you have any interest in the middle east, the Taliban, documentary film-making of a sort that simply doesn’t occur elsewhere, get to this program at least once — preferably for THE MISCREANTS OF TALIWOOD, tonight 4 at 7:15 pm or tomorrow at at 9:00 pm.
