Live at the Mint: Redoubt premiere

The Mint Museum is proud to present Matthew Barney’s critically acclaimed new film REDOUBT. Best known as the creator of the legendary CREMASTER Cycle of films and sculptures, REDOUBT is Barney’s most accessible, emotionally resonant, and visually stunning work yet. The film unfolds as a series of hunts in the Idaho wilderness—filmed during the solar eclipse. The characters communicate a mythological narrative through dance, as they pursue each other and their prey.

Watch the Trailer

“Critic’s Pick! Breathtakingly beautiful. Matthew Barney’s film is a western that reaches for the cosmic. Builds an emotional power that’s unusual in any kind of art.” —Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“Staggering beautiful. Redoubt has a mystical pull.” —Los Angeles Times

“Stunning cinematography. Viscerally satisfying, emotionally cathartic. A mediation on humanity’s relationship to nature and to itself.” —LA Weekly
