To celebrate the theatrical release of Ephraim Asilil’s The Inheritance, his endlessly inventive debut feature and opening night selection of NYFF58’s Currents section, in the FLC Virtual Cinema (get tickets), we asked the Film at Lincoln Center community to share their favorite films that blend documentary and fiction.

From the works of Agnès Varda to Abbas Kiarostami, filmmakers have been blending the genres for decades to explore various elements of reality. Additional favorites included Orson Welles’ F is For Fake, Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell, Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima Mon Amour, and many more. This ongoing series is a part of our Community Corner, which brings movie lovers together in a digital space for community and conversation. Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation via Instagram and Twitter.

Although our theaters are currently closed, the FLC Virtual Cinema and Media Center remain open 24/7. Stay connected to Film at Lincoln Center by joining our online community on InstagramTwitter, Facebook, or Letterboxd, and don’t miss a thing by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.
