Happy Birthday to the iconic actress, Jessica Lange!Photos by Antonio Lopez from 1974.
A landmark work of the New Queer Cinema of the early 1990s, Gregg Araki’s third feature marked a visionary reinvention of the road movie, suffused with the ambient irony, despair, and anger in the wake of the AIDS crisis. Destiny leads hustler Luke (Mike Dytri) to meet film critic Jon (Craig Gilmore), who, like Luke, is HIV-positive. When Luke kills a homophobic cop, the stage is sety for an expressly nihilistic road trip that transmutes the hopelessness of the LGBTQ+ community—after years of dealing with ubiquitous bigotry, persecution, and the pathogenic horror of the AIDS epidemic—into a lovers-on-the-run fever dream quite unlike any other.THE LIVING END is now playing free nationwide through Wednesday on our Virtual Cinema.

"A 2011 revolt in Wukan, China, is the subject of a sobering, sprawling documentary." Jill Li's LOST COURSE, opening today in our Virtual Cinema, is a @nytimes Critic's Pick! ✨Join director Jill Li and producer Peter Yam for a Q&A this Sunday, March 7, at 7pm ET. Get virtual tickets & register for the free Q&A at filmlinc.org/lostcourseNearly 10 years in the making, Jill Li’s revelatory debut film—a documentary about the struggle against corruption in South China—follows the grassroots movement for justice led by a group of people from the fishing port of Wukan. The film begins in 2011, shortly after protests broke out against local Communist Party officials who had been secretly selling off community-owned land. With astonishing access, Li (acting as her own cinematographer) observes the key figures galvanizing a local revolution as they go from hard-won triumphs to, gradually, the same malfeasance and lies they had originally condemned. LOST COURSE offers a timely and deeply affecting look at government wrongdoing and its infective reach into even the most idealistic minds.

“If Africans do not tell their own stories, Africa will soon disappear.” So said Ousmane Sembène, the legendary Senegalese auteur. Over the last many decades, African filmmakers have not only affirmed the existence of the continent on the world stage but created an entirely unique and vibrant language of cinema.
