Now playing in our theaters through August 26!
Last fall, the New York Film Festival was forced to adapt to the extraordinary circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, with its screenings taking place virtually and at drive-in theaters across the city… but not in cinemas, of course. Now that it’s possible to hold in-theater screenings in New York City again, we thought it only right to bring back much of the NYFF58 lineup to be screened and seen as these films were meant to be. So, this summer, join Film at Lincoln Center in the air-conditioned darkness of the Walter Reade Theater and the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center to see these films writ large in a special series of encore screenings of 33 titles from NYFF58.
In addition to such highlights as Ephraim Asili’s The Inheritance (screening on 35mm!), Joyce Chopra’s Smooth Talk, John Gianvito’s Her Socialist Smile, and Orson Welles’s Hopper/Welles, we’ll also be including a run of Anders Edström & C.W. Winter’s The Works and Days, Heinz Emigholz’s Streetscapes [Dialogue] alongside his two related works from last year’s Currents section (The Last City and The Lobby), Luis López Carrasco’s El futuro alongside a run of his Currents standout The Year of the Discovery, Cristi Puiu’s NYFF58 Main Slate entry Malmkrog, a special run of the new restoration of Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Flowers of Shanghai, all five parts of Steve McQueen’s Small Axe (including a run of the NYFF58 Opening Night Film, Lovers Rock), and much, much more… See you at the movies!
For in-theater screenings, please review the FLC in-theater safety and health policies here.
