In celebration of our 50th anniversary, @jakegyllenhaal shares a special message: “Left to our own devices, the film industry would spend all of our time obsessing over the future of our medium. The Film Society of Lincoln Center serves as a vital force that reminds us of the bigger picture and the artistic giants on whose shoulders we stand. They're the voice telling us, "Calm down, folks. You think the internet is a big change? Imagine going from silent films to talkies. Or black and white to color. Film is meant to chronicle major changes, not fight them." Join Gyllenhaal and more special guests at our 50th Anniversary Gala this Monday! 🎉 $50 & $100 tickets just released. Reserve your seats at filmlinc.org/gala 📸: At @thenyff premiere of Wildlife, by @seandiserio #filmlinc50 #jakegyllenhaal #wildlife #nyff

Winner of the top prize at last year’s @filmfestlocarno, Yeo Siew Hua’s third feature A Land Imagined is a clever, evocative shape-shifter that begins as a kind of dreamy noir and ends up a sober, politically incisive work of social realism. Playing today at MoMA (3pm) and tomorrow at FSLC (12:30pm), the film follows a gruff, disenchanted detective Lok (Peter Yu) as he searches for Wang (Liu Xiaoyi), a missing construction worker from mainland China. We’re then ushered back in time to see Wang’s life before his disappearance—and what had seemed a typical noir scenario instead turns out to be far more in line with reality as we know it today. #NDNF
One of @nytimes’s picks to see at New Directors/New Films, Ognjen Glavonić’s wintry road movie The Load concerns a truck driver (Leon Lucev) tasked with transporting mysterious cargo across a scorched landscape from Kosovo to Belgrade during the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. A companion piece to the director’s 2016 documentary Depth Two, the Cannes hit is a work of enveloping atmosphere that puts a politically charged twist on the highway thrillers it recalls: Henri-Georges Clouzot’s The Wages of Fear and William Friedkin’s retelling, Sorcerer. The streamlined premise gives way to a slow-dawning reckoning, in which implications of guilt and complicity slowly but surely sink in. See the U.S. premiere at #NDNF this Wednesday (8:45pm, MoMA) and Thursday (6:30pm, FSLC) with the director in person.
Winner of Best First Feature at @filmfestlocarno, All Good is a “fierce, frill-free study of a woman's response to sexual assault” and “marks director Eva Trobisch and star Aenne Schwarz as names to watch,” says @variety. Making its #NDNF premiere this Monday & Tuesday, Trobisch’s poised and formally restrained feature directorial debut puts on raw display a woman’s fight for her own dignity and sanity. Director Q&A at both screenings.
Philippe Lesage's Genesis is "the greatest discovery" of New Directors/New Films 2019, raves @criterioncast. See the U.S. premiere of one of the most beautiful coming-of-age stories in years this Saturday & Sunday with the director in person! Following his autobiographical 2015 narrative debut The Demons, Lesage continues to chronicle the life of young Felix (Édouard Tremblay-Grenier), now diverging to capture the romantic trials and tribulations of two Quebecois teen siblings. While the charismatic, Salinger-reading Guillaume (Théodore Pellerin) wrestles with his sexual identity at his all-boys boarding school, the more ostensibly grown-up Charlotte (Noée Abita) discovers the casual cruelty of the adult world that awaits her post-graduation. Lesage and his young actors depict the aches of becoming oneself with nuance, honesty, and compassion. #NDNF
Veteran cinematographer Phuttiphong Aroonpheng's debut feature Manta Ray is a "warm, lush and topical human drama," says @hollywoodreporter. See this U.S premiere this Friday & Saturday at #NDNF with the director in person! This mysterious, intoxicating work centers on the friendship between a fisherman and the mute refugee he rescues from a swamp. After the fisherman disappears at sea, the refugee’s mourning is interrupted by the return of the fisherman’s ex-wife, and sure enough, the past bleeds inexorably into the present. A visionary take on the refugee parable, in which mystical elements disrupt the drudgery of everyday life, Manta Ray won the Orizzonti Prize at last year’s Venice Film Festival.
To celebrate 50 years of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, @FilmCommentmagazine is publishing archival interviews for the first time online. The latest conversation is with 1985 Chaplin Award Gala honoree Federico Fellini: "The stories are born in my memories, my dreams, in what I imagine and fantasize; it’s a very natural and spontaneous birth. I don’t specifically sit down to invent something. It’s a series of suggestions of the mind, thinking about things read, personal experiences lived, coming together with a pretext of some sort, a stimulus of the moment, such as the face of a man in the subway, the smell of a waft of perfume that passes, a sound I hear—something that evokes those fantasies and persons and situations that I have in me, and which almost by themselves organize into a form, provided I give them freedom and follow them on their path. It’s a matter of staying with them for a while, of making friends with them."
