If you didn’t manage to get a spot in that free summer school class Gus Van Sant was teaching at MOMA PS1, the Museum of the Moving Image has another way to learn from the master by attending a three-week 13-film retrospective of his works. It starts Friday at 7 with a screening of Drugstore Cowboy, Van Sant’s 1989 indie classic, set in 1970s Portland and starring Matt Dillon. Other films in the series include his first film Mala Noche (1985) and My Own Private Idaho (1991). The highlight is on September 14 when Van Sant will be in the house for a talk after the screening of his latest film, Restless.
