Fifty years ago, more than two dozen filmmakers wrote the manifesto of the New American Cinema Group/Film-Makers’ Cooperative?a communal, collaborative organization founded on the principles of "self-sufficiency and free expression through the art of cinema." In celebration of the organization’s formal incorporation on July 14, 1961, the National Gallery presented a series of five programs of films from the Co-op’s impressive catalogue and hosted filmmakers Jonas Mekas, Ken Jacobs, and executive director M. M. Serra in July 2011.
