Named one of @filmcommentmagazine’s best undistributed films of 2018, Virgil Vernier’s Sophia Antipolis makes its North American premiere this Tuesday & Sunday at Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. “As in his previous film, Mercuriales, a similarly surreal urban social study, Vernier exhibits a rare knack for evoking the ennui of modern life and the ghosts that haunt the margins of even the most unassuming environments,” says Jordan Cronk. “Shot on beautifully textured 16mm, Sophia Antipolis imaginatively depicts an ostensibly alien landscape with just enough real world detail to genuinely unsettle.” #rendezvous
Just announced! On March 14, join Kent Jones for a sneak preview of his @Tribeca award-winning drama Diane, featuring a career-defining performance by Mary Kay Place. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, the drama follows Diane (Kay Place), who lives alone in western Massachusetts and spends most of her time caring for her friends and family, including her son (Jake Lacy), who has spent his adult life in and out of rehab. As the people closest to her gradually change and disappear over time, a past misdeed continues to smolder until Diane’s solitude—and the film itself—opens to new levels of acuity. Diane is a thoroughly lived-in, exquisitely textured drama deeply attuned to the emotions, visions, and spirituality of its protagonist. Get tickets at filmlinc.org/diane
The complete lineup for the 48th New Directors/New Films has been announced! Throughout its rich, nearly half-century history, the festival–taking place March 27-April 7 at @FilmLinc and @themuseumofmodernart–has celebrated filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema, daring artists whose work pushes the envelope in unexpected ways. This year’s festival will introduce 24 features and 11 short films to New York audiences. The Opening, Closing, and Centerpiece selections are the New York premieres of three Sundance award-winners: opening the festival is Chinonye Chukwu’s Clemency, which won the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and features a masterful performance from Alfre Woodard as a prison warden grappling with her role in the justice system; Centerpiece is Alejandro Landes’s Monos, a contemporary reimagining of Lord of the Flies and winner of a World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Prize; and closing ND/NF is Pippa Bianco’s Share, a powerful portrait of a sexual assault victim, which took home U.S. Dramatic prizes for Breakthrough Performance and Screenwriting. Explore the full #NDNF lineup at newdirectors.org. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 8 at noon. MoMA and Film Society members receive an early access purchasing period starting on Monday, March 4 at noon.
