In a future world where Manhattan has become a giant maximum-security prison controlled by its inmates, only one man has the brawn to save the president after a crash landing on the island. His name is Snake Plissken. The beginning of a series of collaborations between John Carpenter and Kurt Russell, Escape from New York is a sci-fi action adventure that continues to influence pop culture today.

The ArthouseFW – Muse Series presents a pair of filmmakers whose artistic visions inspire each other’s creativity. The first program in this series will feature the celebrated director John Carpenter and his go-to action hero, Kurt Russell. Together these filmmakers have created some of the most iconic films and characters from the '80s and '90s.
