  • American Indies from the Collections of MoMA

    The first wave of independent cinema in the United States began in the 1920s, led by serious artists setting out to challenge a nascent art form. The films from The Museum of Modern Art included in this series, all of American origin, underscore the diversity of subject matter, artists, and production means inherent in the original indies.
