In the fall of 2012 the Yale University Art Gallery hosted the film series Out of This Same Light - Six Films Considered by Robert Adams in conjunction with the retrospective Robert Adams: The Place We Live.

The accompanying program included text about each film written by Adams himself, and a few dozen titles for further viewing. I’ve been unable to find any notes online about the series or the program and thought I’d share Adams’s list here.

What follows are forty-one movies hand picked by Robert Adams, “Some favorite movies, some as tough as they come, a few mostly for laughs… all to help us better endure or enjoy life…”
