The films of Oscar-winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman “have not only positively changed the trajectory of LGBT history, but also have helped influence later generations of documentarians from all walks of life,” says @sfchronicle. 🏳️🌈 Our nationwide virtual retrospective begins this Friday featuring new restorations of The AIDS Show, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, Paragraph 175 & Where Are We? 🎥 See more and save with a discount bundle! @epsteinrob & @jeffreyfriedman will also join us for a free talk this Saturday at 6pm ET.

We were delighted to welcome Martin Eden writer-director Pietro Marcello & star Luca Marinelli for a conversation on romance, physicality, being inspired by Marlon Brando, autodidacticism, and much more. Watch the full Q&A and get tickets for their acclaimed Jack London adaptation, along with a director retrospective, at filmlinc.org/pietro 🇮🇹
“All my films hinge on the fantastic. I'm not a documentarian; a film is first and foremost a dream, and it's absurd to copy life in an attempt to produce an exact recreation of it." - Jean-Pierre Melville, born on this day in 1917.📸: On the set of Le Samouraï with Alain Delon.
“One of the rawest, vulgar, and absolutely poignant portraits of love ever presented in documentary,” says Donal Mosher. Pietro Marcello's Berlinale winner The Mouth of the Wolf is now playing through Thursday in our virtual nationwide retrospective dedicated to the Martin Eden director! Marcello’s haunting documentary is a sui generis love story, following the 20-year relationship between a Sicilian heavy named Vincenzo and a trans convict named Mary after their meet-cute in prison.
Shot on expired 16mm film stock and freely incorporating archival footage and folkloric tropes, Pietro Marcello’s beguiling Lost and Beautiful begins as a portrait of the shepherd Tommaso, a local hero in the Campania region of southern Italy, who has volunteered to look after the abandoned Bourbon palace of Carditello despite the state’s apathy and threats from the Mafia. When Tommaso suffers a fatal heart attack during the film’s shooting, Marcello boldly grants his subject’s dying wish: for a Pulcinella straight out of the commedia dell’arte to rescue a buffalo calf from the palace. A documentary that soars into the realm of myth, the Locarno winner is an enormously moving work of political cine-poetry. Now playing virtually nationwide as part of our retrospective dedicated to the Martin Eden director! 🇮🇹 Watch at filmlinc.org/pietro and save with a discount bundle.
“One of the most epic-feeling Italian movies in years, a throwback to ’70s-era big-canvas statements. Lead actor Luca Marinelli, rousing in every scene, comes within hailing distance of the young Robert De Niro.” – @timeoutnewyork Pietro Marcello’s Venice and TIFF winner Martin Eden is now playing in our Virtual Cinema with a director retrospective! 🇮🇹 Don’t miss a Q&A with Marcello & Marinelli this Monday at 5pm ET.

For more than 30 years, Oscar-winning directors @epsteinrob & @jeffreyfriedman have borne powerful witness to gay life, creativity, and activism — documenting lost aspects of LGBTQ+ history and chronicling unfolding events with humor, compassion, and fierce urgency. In their films, which will be presented in a virtual nationwide retrospective beginning October 23, extraordinary interviews make the political personal and unforgettable. 🏳️🌈 With Paragraph 175 and The Celluloid Closet, Epstein and Friedman examined the persecution of gay men in Nazi Germany and Hollywood’s history of hidden homophobia. Their documentaries The AIDS Show, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, The Times of Harvey Milk, and Where Are We? have both chronicled and helped change history. As we look at their essential partnership and the endlessly empathetic, consciousness-building films it has yielded, we invite you to see more and save with this four-film program bundle, featuring a selection vital works released by @milestone_films: The AIDS Show, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt, Paragraph 175, and Where Are We? Our Trip Through America. Also, don’t miss a free talk with the directors on Oct. 24 at 6pm ET! Tickets on sale now at virtual.filmlinc.org 🎟
To celebrate the opening of Martin Eden this Friday, we're proud to present a Pietro Marcello retrospective featuring four striking films by the Italian master. Available nationwide! See more & save with a discount bundle at filmlinc.org/pietro 🇮🇹One of world cinema’s most exciting working directors, Marcello has spent the last 15 years crafting a filmography that straddles past and present, documentary and fiction, folklore and political intervention. His idiosyncratic use of archival materials paired with his penchant for capturing, enlarging, and exalting the sensuous details of the physical world yields films that have distinguished themselves within today’s Italian cinema, or indeed, world cinema at large. In Marcello’s work, history, mythology, and the political situation of today cohere to forward a by-turns neorealist and fabulist image of the modern world as one shaped by invisible metaphysical and economic forces. Films in the retrospective include Crossing the Line, The Mouth of the Wolf, The Silence of Pelesjan, and Lost and Beautiful.

The thriller genre is exploded and reassembled in @dennismademe & @paulcfhere’s Slow Machine, a funny and alluring work on paranoia, surveillance, and performance. See the #NYFF nationwide virtual premiere tonight beginning at 8pm ET! Featuring an intriguingly eclectic cast (including the experimental theater performers Stephanie Hayes and Scott Shepherd, the musician Eleanor Friedberger, and Chloë Sevigny), the Currents selection follows an actress (Hayes) whose intimate relationship with a shadowy NYPD-affiliated operative ends abruptly and disastrously, leading her to hide out in a country house otherwise occupied by a band preparing their new record. But la vie bohemienne proves almost as anxious and tense as life in the city… Deftly lensed in 16mm and unfurling as a digressive, tantalizingly off-kilter mystery, Slow Machine is a fascinating work pitched at the intersection of American independent cinema and the avant-garde theater of Richard Foreman and the Wooster Group. Screens with @mark_jenkin’s Hard, Cracked The Wind.
Exploring the forgotten histories of 1992 in Spain, @luis_lopez_carrasco’s The Year of the Discovery is "formally audacious and politically enticing," says @TheFilmStage. Now playing virtually nationwide now at the 58th #NYFF through Monday! In this pivotal year, Spain celebrated both the Olympic Games in Barcelona and the quincentenary of Columbus’s arrival in the Americas—and ushered in a new age of neoliberalism and economic restructuring. Through one-on-one interviews, complex split-screen compositions, and subtle manipulations of time, The Year of the Discovery offers a vivid counternarrative to the official history, one in which industrial labor’s toll on the body and the brutal fracturing of communities testifies against a national mythology of progress.

Australian filmmaker @aota_wu allows the viewer to feel time passing, seasons changing, and life moving on in The Plastic House, a tactile, lovingly crafted cinematic experiment that doubles as a personal emotional exercise. Economical yet expansive, and largely wordless, the #NYFF Currents selection takes place almost entirely inside and around her Cambodian family’s dilapidated greenhouse, where she oversees inspiring regrowth despite the sometimes harsh natural elements. Chhorn filters and displaces her fears about her parents’ deaths onto an intensely moving narrative of ritual, physical labor, and isolation. Now playing virtually nationwide with @laida_lertxundi’s Autoficción and Shun Ikezoe’s See You in My Dreams.
The brand-new restoration of Hou Hsiao-hsien’s ravishingly beautiful chamber drama Flowers of Shanghai is now playing virtually nationwide through Sunday at @TheNYFF! 🇹🇼 The Revivals selection follows the intertwined fortunes and intrigues of four “flower girls” serving in the opulent brothels of fin-de-siècle 19th-century Shanghai. The great Tony Leung stars as the melancholy Master Wang, torn between his affections for the jealous, demanding Crimson (Michiko Hada) and the more eager-to-please Jasmin (Vicky Wei), and gradually realizing that he is looking for love in all the wrong places. Hou’s first film set outside his native Taiwan, Flowers of Shanghai is a transfixing masterwork and an achingly, intoxicatingly sensuous landmark of ’90s world cinema. Limited tickets available at virtual.filmlinc.org. #houhsiaohsien #flowersofshanghai #NYFF
Due to overwhelming demand, we've released more nationwide virtual & NYC drive-in tickets for this Saturday's world premiere of French Exit, the Closing Night film of the 58th @TheNYFF! Act fast. 🎟 Michelle Pfeiffer is entirely bewitching as an imperious, widowed New York socialite who, facing financial insolvency, relocates to a friend’s empty apartment in Paris with her dyspeptic son, Malcolm (Lucas Hedges), and their mercurial cat, and begins to grimly plan for an impossible future. Azazel Jacobs’s adaptation of the best-selling novel by Patrick deWitt is a rare American film of genuine eccentricity, with a brilliant central performance. The nationwide virtual premiere is presented by @campariusa. ✨ #frenchexit #michellepfeiffer #lucashedges #tracyletts #nyff
The first film from The Living and the Dead Ensemble—a collaboration among artists and performers from Haiti, France, and the United Kingdom spearheaded by artist Louis Henderson and curator Olivier Marboeuf—Ouvertures traces a reverse chronology of the life of revolutionary leader Toussaint L’Ouverture from his imprisonment and death in France at the hands of Napoleon’s forces, to Port-au-Prince, where, in the present, a group of young actors translate, rehearse, and debate their Creole production of Édouard Glissant’s play Monsieur Toussaint. Now playing virtually nationwide through Saturday at 8pm ET at @TheNYFF, the film becomes a meditation on the politics of collective authorship and translation, creating a space in which the ghosts of Haiti’s colonial past return to address its present. #NYFF

Steve McQueen: “These stories are as relevant now as they were then. It’s only now that people are waking up to the fact that there’s been injustices against Black people for decades in this country, and centuries elsewhere. It took a pandemic. It took a brutal killing. It took millions marching. For people to think, ‘Possibly I should think in a different way.’ And only possibly, it’s not actually done yet. Millions of people on the street before change can even be considered, before people can think that even possibly something could be wrong! The world is not a healthy place. If you really want change, if you are really serious about it then, hey, it starts from the beginning.

“R.W. Fassbinder once remarked that he sought to build a house with his films, but it is German director Heinz Emigholz who may ultimately come to realize this dream. Over the past quarter-century, he has emerged as Germany’s—if not contemporary cinema’s—premier chronicler of architecture,” says @hitliquor. Heinz Emigholz’s The Lobby and The Last City, now playing virtually nationwide at the 58th #NYFF through Tuesday, extend the director’s architectural and spatial preoccupations into playful, fictive realms of the uncanny. Join Emigholz and Christian Petzold for a free talk on October 10 at 2pm. Advance registration required.
Multiple films in this year’s #NYFF contend with global protest movements and the fight against police brutality: in the Main Slate, Mangrove and Red, White and Blue from Steve McQueen‘s #SmallAxe anthology chronicle the racist police violence experienced by London’s West Indian community in the 1970s and ’80s; David Dufresne’s Spotlight selection, The Monopoly of Violence, documents the state repression leveled against France’s “yellow vest” protesters. To expand on the timely questions raised by these films, this Saturday at 2pm ET, we’re bringing together a group of film artists and writers for a conversation about the cinematic representation of police brutality and revolutionary protest. Participants include Courttia Newland (co-writer, Small Axe anthology); Bertrand Faivre (producer, The Monopoly of Violence); Blair McClendon (writer and filmmaker); @melissagira (staff writer, @newrepublic).

Her Name Was Europa, now playing virtually nationwide through Sunday only, finds Berlin-based filmmakers Anja Dornieden and Juan David González Monroy fashioning a poetic and deadpan 16mm work of fanciful nonfiction based on historical attempts to bring back the aurochs, a breed of wild cattle extinct since the early 17th century. Screening with A Night at the Opera, the latest archival wonder from Sergei Loznitsa, an ironic mini-portrait of the galas of Paris’s Palais Garnier in the 1950s and ’60s featuring adoring crowds and glimpses of Bardot, Cocteau, and Queen Elizabeth II amid the pomp and ceremony of Parisian high society. #NYFF
Chaitanya Tamhane’s The Disciple, premiering at @queensdrivein on Thursday and screening virtually nationwide through Sunday only, is the first Indian film in @TheNYFF’s Main Slate in over two decades. 🇮🇳 We spoke with the director about crafting his extraordinary Court follow-up and what he learned from executive producer @alfonsocuaron after being on set during Roma: “I can say truly getting to know him and his approach to films expanded my vocabulary as a filmmaker. He’s a sorcerer in many ways. The kind of control he has over the medium when it comes to image, sound, using VFX to tell the narrative–it was awe-inspiring. I was like, ‘How do you know everything about everything so well?’ So, yes, it has changed my approach to cinema. It has made me more ambitious. It has made me even more of a control freak than I was. He’s taught me to be fearless and to have a big vision and never settle for less.” Listen to the full conversation on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast or watch on our YouTube channel.

Now playing virtually nationwide through Sunday only, veteran filmmaker Philippe Garrel once again fashions a pinpoint-precise and economical study of young love and its prevarications in The Salt of Tears, which ever so gradually blossoms into an emotionally resonant moral tale. Handsome Luc (Logann Antuofermo), following in his aging father’s footsteps to study the craft of furniture joining, doesn’t appear to have any trouble meeting and dating women; as the film opens he’s aggressively courting Djemila (Oulaya Amamra) at a Paris bus stop. Skeptical yet ultimately trusting, Djemila will not be Luc’s one and only. Constructed and composed with crystalline austerity, and co-written with Jean-Claude Carrière and Arlette Langmann—who collaborated on Garrel’s last two films, In the Shadow of Women (NYFF53) and Lover for a Day (NYFF55)—The Salt of Tears is a pocket portrait that demonstrates the persistent vitality of one of French cinema’s great observers of the callowness of youth.
Among the most emotionally resonant and innovatively conceived cinematic love stories in years, @heidiewing’s I Carry You With Me unexpectedly and brilliantly incorporates documentary elements into the tale of a burgeoning romance between two men who cross the border from Mexico to the U.S. Tickets just released for Friday’s @queensdrivein premiere at #NYFF!

Mid-century home movies in glorious color provide the narrative skeleton for a singular exploration of storytelling in Nuria Giménez’s first feature, My Mexican Bretzel, now playing virtually nationwide through Saturday only! Winner of the Found Footage Award at this year’s @iffr, the #NYFF Currents selection uses onscreen subtitles, taken from the diaries of one Vivian Barrett, to accompany and narrate silent images of her life with her husband Léon, a World War II pilot who damaged his hearing in a plane accident. As we follow the couple on their travels around the world, their story grows more unpredictable and perhaps improbable, and Giménez reveals her spellbinding film to be an imaginative cinematic sleight of hand.
“Subtitles at the drive-in, finally!” Get ready, Bronx. 🔥 John Waters is here for his #NYFF drive-in double feature of Climax and Salò.
The new 20th anniversary restoration of In the Mood for Love, premiering at @QueensDriveIn and virtually nationwide this Monday at 8pm ET, will feature an exclusive filmed introduction by Wong Kar Wai! ❤️ Limited tickets available.@lwlies just named it the best film of the 21st century thus far: “In the Mood For Love made Wong Kar Wai synonymous with a breathtaking visual grace that enshrouds characters. Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung are neighbours in British Hong Kong. They realise that their spouses are having an affair together and form a friendship, passing the time in different rooms, moving with deliberation as smoke curls into an atmosphere alive with unspoken feelings. They role-play interactions between their cheating other-halves; as close as they allow themselves to get to mirroring the betrayal. Time stretches into eternity, until it is cut short. Shigeru Umebayashi’s indelible string theme conveys the delicate emotions that hang in the balance. They are both impossibly elegant, governed by a strange dignity.” #wongkarwai #inthemoodforlove #jettonefilms #nyff #maggiecheung #tonyleung

Watch both Revivals selections now at virtual.filmlinc.org 🎥
“We don’t listen enough these days. We say a lot about how we feel and what we believe and what we think about the world. We didn’t want her character to do that. We wanted her character to just listen and take what life throws at her. We wanted her to react and not act.” Ahead of tonight's #NYFF Centerpiece premiere of Nomadland, director Chloé Zhao discusses the brilliance of Frances McDormand, capturing the gig economy, and more with @eugonline on today’s @filmlinc podcast. 🎧 Tune in!

“Stunning . . . An intoxicating and immersive visual experience,” says @indiewire. Paying homage to the tradition of the griot in West African culture, Night of the Kings is a work of Shakespearean fabulism and gripping, energetic cinema, an altogether original vision from breakout Ivory Coast filmmaker Philippe Lacôte. 🇨🇮 The NEON release and Best International Film Oscar contender makes its @TheNYFF premiere at the Bronx Drive-in on September 30! Limited virtual tickets are also now available through September 29. #NYFF
Argentine filmmaker @matiaspineiro continues to explore the porous line between performance and daily ritual in his most visually striking film yet, Isabella, now playing virtually nationwide for a limited time! As in such subtly magical dramas of the everyday as The Princess of France (NYFF52) and Hermia & Helena (NYFF54), Piñeiro uses a Shakespeare text to anchor a loose yet intellectually rigorous examination of life’s loves, labors, and futile pursuits, all played out with the minutest of gestures. Isabella uses Measure for Measure as inspiration, with regular Piñeiro players María Villar and Agustina Muñoz as Mariel, a teacher with stage aspirations, and Luciana, a more established actress. The filmmaker jumps around in time, from the days leading up to a crucial audition to years later, after the women have moved on to other dreams; meanwhile we keep returning to their collaboration on an entrancing, James Turrell–like light installation. Piñeiro’s art has never been more graceful or structurally complex as in this work of solace amid anxiety and doubt. 🎧 Also, don’t miss @matiaspineiro’s chat with @browniekamera on the @filmlinc podcast today! #NYFF

“You may have known that Helen Keller was a comrade, a life-long socialist and member of the Industrial Workers of the World; in Her Socialist Smile, John Gianvito assembles Keller’s political addresses and writings into a portrait of a warrior for social justice and a passionate, insightful proselytizer of Marxist thought. She instigated a Braille translation of Bakunin and advocated for a general strike during the first Red Scare. Now, in a time of national self-criticism, when seemingly no American monument is safe from revisionism, Helen Keller emerges from Her Socialist Smile to appear even more inspiring, relevant, and righteous than in the official narrative—appears, perhaps, the only truly based person they teach you about in elementary school,” says @thefilmstage. The essential new documentary Her Socialist Smile premieres virtually nationwide beginning at 8pm tonight at #NYFF and plays through Saturday only! #hersocialistsmile #helenkeller #socialism #socialist

"Some of the most magnificent black-and-white images shot anywhere in the world." – Village VoiceThe new 4K restoration of Béla Tarr’s Damnation premieres nationwide tonight at 8pm ET as part of @TheNYFF’s Revivals section! A key turning point in the Hungarian master’s career, the first of the director’s six collaborations with novelist László Krasznahorkai is a highly stylized, black-and-white film noir, focusing on the efforts of a dour loner (Miklós Székely B.) to steal back his estranged lover from her debt-addled husband.

“2020 is a revealing of everything that’s always been there. It’s not new.

Premiering in a new restoration tonight at #NYFF, Smooth Talk features the work of three powerhouse women: director Joyce Chopra; actress @lauradern, in one of her first starring roles; and author Joyce Carol Oates, whose 1966 short story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” provided the inspiration for the film. To celebrate the premiere of the film’s new restoration—available nationwide & at Brooklyn Drive-In beginning at 8pm ET—tune in live for a conversation with Chopra, Dern, and Oates, moderated by @turnerclassicmovies host @aliciamalone, about the creative work of adaptation and the perennially resonant subject matter of a young woman’s early encounter with the powers and perils of her sexuality.

“No new work by Jean-Luc Godard at this year’s NYFF, but his presence is evoked in Ephraim Asili’s The Inheritance,” says @artforum’s Tony Pipolo ahead of tonight’s premiere—both virtually nationwide and at the BK Drive-In. “Plastered on a wall in the Philadelphia meeting hall of a Black radical collective is a poster of La Chinoise (1967). Asili’s first feature shows two young African Americans strolling back and forth across the frame, as Jean-Pierre Léaud and Anne Wiazemskys did in Godard’s film, reading aloud from politically charged texts. While the call for revolution in La Chinoise was announced in the popular Quotations from Mao—the little red pamphlet piled high like a street barricade in the movie’s poster—the texts in The Inheritance represent a wide range of thinkers and artists who belong to the Black radical tradition. These are invoked in the film’s first few images as if they were the contents of a treasure chest. From Frederick Douglass to James Baldwin, Malcolm X to Toni Morrison, they comprise the inheritance that inspires the cast of activists with various beliefs and approaches. Its earnestness notwithstanding, The Inheritance, in drawing a vibrant lineage, reminds us of art’s crucial role in changing consciousness.” #NYFF
Spend an evening with Dennis Hopper and Orson Welles tonight at @queensdrivein! In November 1970, two movie mavericks, one already a legend (Orson Welles) and the other on his way to mythic status (Dennis Hopper), met for an epochal conversation. It had been more than a decade since Welles had worked within the Hollywood system, and he had begun to strike out on his own as an independent, ruthlessly idiosyncratic artist; Hopper, on the other hand, had just had an unexpected major success with the studio-financed counterculture hit Easy Rider. At this decisive moment, the pair of auteurs shared their candid thoughts and feelings about cinema, art, and life, and Welles captured this unscripted talk on two cameras, in lush black and white, lit only by a fireplace and hurricane lamps. This entertaining and revealing footage, never before seen in full, has been resurrected by producer @filip_jan and editor Bob Murawski, who helped bring Welles’s unfinished The Other Side of the Wind to meticulously restored life two years ago. Drive-in screening begins at 8pm tonight. Nationwide virtual screenings begin on September 28 for 5 days only. #dennishopper #orsonwelles #hopperwelles #NYFF

Paul Thomas Anderson: "Gunda is pure cinema. This is a film to take a bath in - it’s stripped to its essential elements, without any interference. It’s what we should all aspire to as filmmakers and audiences - pictures and sound put together to tell a powerful and profound story without rush. Its jaw dropping images and sound put together with the best ensemble cast and you have something more like a potion than a movie.” See @TheNYFF premiere of Victor Kossakovsky's immersive, remarkable documentary this Saturday at @queensdrivein & virtual nationwide screenings beginning at 8pm! Limited tickets available. #gunda #nyff #victorkossakovsky

Steve McQueen on his Small Axe series: “I dedicate these films to George Floyd, and all the other black people that have been murdered, seen or unseen, because of who they are, in the U.S., U.K. and elsewhere. ‘If you are the big tree, we are the small axe.’ Black lives matter.” ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿We’re proud to present three films from McQueen’s ambitious, multifaceted anthology of decades-spanning films that alights on various lives in London’s West Indian community. This Thursday, @TheNYFF opens with Lovers Rock, a movie of tactile sensuality and levitating joy, screening at the @queensdrivein & Brooklyn Drive-In.
