Third and final performance added, taking place Thursday, May 2 at 9:15pm! Tickets on sale now.
Film at Lincoln Center welcomes multi-instrumentalist composer Eiko Ishibashi, who scored director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car (NYFF59), for the North American premiere of her live performance of GIFT. This brand-new feature from Hamaguchi, developed in collaboration with Ishibashi, is something like the concentrated, wordless flipside of Evil Does Not Exist (NYFF61, opening at FLC on May 3), a sui generis ecopolitical thriller set within a serene rural village that’s about to be disrupted by the construction of a glamping site for Tokyo tourists. How this scenario unfolds in GIFT is an altogether different experience: a silent feature that will only be presented with the live accompaniment of Ishibashi’s score, performed by the composer herself. Join us this May for what promises to be an unmissable event, presented for two nights only in the Walter Reade Theater.
