"I'm jealous of anyone who got to see it projected on a big screen, with booming sound, because that's how it should be seen. It's a spectacle as well as an account of a time and place.

Winner of Best Canadian Feature Film at TIFF this year, STE. ANNE makes its U.S. premiere tonight at 8:30pm at @TheNYFF! $10 Rush tickets available at 7:30pm at the box office. Also plays again tomorrow at 4pm. 🇨🇦 In her evocative, collage-like 16mm film, Rhayne Vermette immerses the viewer in the sounds, textures, and atmosphere of her native Manitoba to limn the outer edges of a twilight-toned narrative centering on a long-missing young woman’s unexpected return to her indigenous Métis community. Unbeholden to temporal or structural boundaries, Vermette uses Renée’s reappearance as the anchor point for a work of dreams and memory. Shot over the course of 14 months, incorporating scripted and improvised elements, STE. ANNE is as much a fragmentary portrait of the seasons as it is about the people whose lives are dictated in part by nature’s flow. #NYFF59
One of the great rock movies and an absorbing, richly detailed document of the United Kingdom as it exits the 1970s and enters the 1980s, the new restoration of Jack Hazan and David Mingay’s RUDE BOY plays tonight at 8:45pm at @TheNYFF! $10 Rush tickets available beginning at 7:45pm at Walter Reade Theater.The film follows Ray Gange (essentially playing himself) as he quits his Soho sex-shop gig to hit the road with one of the most exciting, influential bands on the planet: The Clash. Accompanying them to such iconic performances as the 1978 Rock Against Racism concert in London’s Victoria Park and in the studio for the recording of Give ‘Em Enough Rope, Ray finds himself amid the swirling winds of change as musical subcultures rise to push back against the ascendant British right wing. An unforgettable film portrait of a place, a time, and a band, RUDE BOY is still as cool and galvanizing as it was at its 1980 Berlinale premiere. #NYFF59
Join Pedro Almodóvar, @penelopecruzoficial & @milenasmitm in-person this Friday at @TheNYFF for the Closing Night premiere of PARALLEL MOTHERS! 💜✨ Tickets just added for the 9pm screening with Q&A. Get yours at filmlinc.org 🎟“Pedro Almodóvar’s Parallel Mothers moves both forward and backward, with love and politics on its mind,” says A.O. Scott at @nytimes. “It follows the entwined lives of its two main characters, women (played by Milena Smit and Penélope Cruz) who give birth in the same hospital, over a period of several years. Their fates unfold under the shadow, at times imperceptible, at times unavoidable, of the Spanish Civil War and the dictatorship that followed. The intersection of historical trauma and individual destiny isn’t an uncommon theme in contemporary cinema, but Almodóvar handles it with characteristic elegance and a profoundly melancholy humanism.”
Your Monday night plans: join Mike Mills, Joaquin Phoenix, Rebecca Hall, Tessa Thompson, Ruth Negga, and André Holland in person for @TheNYFF premieres of their new films. ✨ Tickets just added for tonight’s screenings of C’MON C’MON at 6pm and PASSING at 8:45pm! Act fast: filmlinc.org/tix 🎟

A sui generis deconstruction of the road movie, Christopher Petit’s RADIO ON rates, by any measure, among the coolest films of the late 1970s. See the new restoration Tuesday at 8:45pm or Wednesday at 3:15pm at @TheNYFF! Limited tickets at filmlinc.org/tix 🎸 🎶 📻 Its plot is minimalist: a man (David Beames) drives from London to Bristol upon learning of his brother’s suicide, seeking to learn more about the circumstances of his death. But this journey grows increasingly strange as he crosses paths with a succession of eccentric characters (including memorable appearances by Sting and Lisa Kreuzer). Shot by Wim Wenders collaborator Martin Schäfer, Radio On’s spare, hypnotic beauty is propelled even further by its incomparably atmospheric soundtrack, featuring Kraftwerk, David Bowie, Devo, Robert Fripp, and others.

Premiering tonight at @newyorkasianfilmfestival, RISING SHAOLIN: THE PROTECTOR is a refreshingly spirited homage to kung fu films of yore belies the conceits of the digital age, while paying special tribute to Jet Li’s 1982 watershed The Shaolin Temple. While it still looks contemporary, Rising Shaolin blends “now” with “then” to produce a rousing spectacle of martial-arts fury with a perennial moral of might for right. Star Wang Baoqiang (Detective Chinatown), both a cutup and a dedicated martial artist, throws irreverent comedy and kinetic action into a highly entertaining mix of slapstick, pathos, and unbridled adventure. It’s a hero’s journey of redemption paved with violence, featuring choreography reminiscent of the kung fu greats.Watch the International Premiere at filmlinc.org/nyaff2021

KEEP ROLLING is an amiable, intimate portrait of legendary filmmaker Ann Hui. Director Man Lim Chung, a frequent Hui collaborator, expertly deploys a wealth of archival images and interviews with friends, family, and a who’s who of film-industry stalwarts. But the vibrant, unfiltered Hui herself is our guide, captured while making OUR TIME WILL COME (2017) at the age of 70, while at home with her elderly mother, and in the public eye. The chain-smoking, wisecracking, incessantly working, eternally enthusiastic filmmaker candidly discusses her tumultuous 40-year career; recalls her discovery, at the age of 16, that her mother was Japanese; and confesses to her ongoing love affair with books (“if film is my spouse, then literature is my mistress”).The documentary is a must-see not only for Hui devotees but for lovers of film everywhere.

Tomorrow's 7pm screening of THE HOURGLASS SANATORIUM will feature a special introduction from Annette Insdorf, Film Professor at Columbia University and author of Intimations: The Cinema of Wojciech Has!The collective trauma of the Holocaust looms over this adaptation of Jewish author Bruno Schulz’s visionary and poetic reflection on the nature of time and death, which won the Jury Award at Cannes. Józef (Jan Nowicki) finds himself aboard a train en route to visit his father in the hospital; he arrives to find the hospital in a state that’s a bit less than… orderly. From there, past and present, reality and fantasy, collapse into each other, unleashing a surreal phantasmagoria that is by turns psychedelic, paranoiac, elegiac, funny, and everywhere haunted by the specter of death: both Józef’s prophesied death and the death of a Europe that existed before the rise of Hitler, the horrors of the Holocaust, and the carnage of World War II.Get tickets to the new 4K restoration (restored from the original camera negative) at filmlinc.org/nyff58redux.
Don't miss @newyorkasianfilmfestival’s free outdoor screening of DRAGON INN AKA NEW DRAGON GATE INN AT @lincolncenter’s #RestartStages this Wednesday! Two of Asia’s greatest actresses of all time, Maggie Cheung and Brigitte Lin (who famously took an arrow in the eye during the shoot), play badass swordswomen who attempt to thwart Ming Dynasty eunuch Tsao (played by Donnie Yen in full supervillain form) as he masterminds a plot to take over the Empire. One of the first Hong Kong films to be shot in China, co-writer/producer Tsui Hark’s swordplay extravaganza is the gold standard of 1990s wuxia. After this madcap blend of female-powered gravity-defying acrobatics and spaghetti-western tropes, it’s no surprise that both Cheung and Lin have since retired from the big screen. Because really, how do you top a movie like this?

Considered one of the founders of the Polish Film School movement, Andrzej Munk’s work, bristled with cool skepticism, and indefatigable elements of satire and irony that evaded state censorship guidelines, encapsulates the spirit of rebellion in postwar Poland. Munk received a posthumous award at the 1964 Cannes Film Festival recognizing his entire oeuvre, and his influence persists, visible in the work of renowned Polish filmmakers such as Krzysztof Zanussi, Krzysztof Kieślowski, and Jerzy Skolimowski, Munk’s former student. New restorations of seven of his pivotal films will open on August 20 in our Virtual Cinema. Get nationwide tickets at filmlinc.org/munk.

This latest radical dispatch from beyond the grave by the late legendary Chilean director Raúl Ruiz, THE TANGO OF THE WIDOWER AND ITS DISTORTING MIRROR, plays this Saturday at 1pm and Wednesday at 6pm in Walter Reade Theater! 🇨🇱 Working from the ethereal, surrealistic, Poe-like images that Ruiz left behind, Valerie Sarmiento has reconstructed the story her husband had wished to tell: that of a sickly literature professor haunted by the memory of his wife (who has recently committed suicide) and attempting to carry on as normal despite the ever-weakening boundary between his dreams and waking life. TANGO is paradoxically both an early Ruiz film and a radically contemporary experiment, at once the birth of a new work and the resurrection of a work that never was.
Nicolás Pereda's FAUNA, opening today in our theaters for one week only, is a @nytimes Critic's Pick! ✨“Brimming with postmodern flourishes, Fauna calls attention to the slippery nature of performance and identity, lodging a complex, yet highly engrossing critique of narco culture’s influence on Mexican storytelling — and it does so without a drop of that pesky didacticism,” says @bea_loayza.See showtimes & get tickets for the #NYFF58 selection at the link in bio.
