After the New York Film Festival Opening Night Gala screening of Robert Zemeckis’s The Walk in 3D, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit with Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and Ben Schwartz had to be rescheduled due to the visit of Pope Francis, the Museum of Modern Art in New York today announced What Lies Beneath: The Films of Robert Zemeckis.

His feature films, including Romancing The Stone, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express, Contact, Used Cars, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Cast Away, A Christmas Carol, Beowulf and Flight (Closing Night Gala selection of the 2012 New York Film Festival) will be shown. On October 3, screenings of Back To The Future, Back To The Future Part II and Back To The Future Part III in succession celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original film's release.

Kicking off the retrospective on September 29, Zemeckis will participate in a post-screening discussion following The Walk. A selection of his television work and student films will also be shown later on in the programme.

What Lies Beneath: The Films of Robert Zemeckis runs from September 29 through October 18 and is organized by Dave Kehr, Adjunct Curator, Department of Film, MoMA.
