Film at Lincoln Center presents a selection of films handpicked by Lulu Wang that influenced her new Prime Video series, Expats, featuring the filmmaker in-person on February 15th for a Q&A following the feature-length Expats episode “Central,” and an introduction to her 2019 hit The Farewell.

The series includes a wide range of influences, from 1970s classics to harrowing horror films to documentaries and narrative features tackling the intersection of class, race, and abuse of power, with several selections presented on 35mm. Highlights include well-known filmmakers’ works, such as Triangle of Sadness writer-director Ruben Östlund’s 2011 film Play; the overdue New York theatrical premiere of A White, White Day (2019) from filmmaker Hlynur Pálmason (recently shortlisted for an Oscar with his latest film Godland); and classics including a 4K restoration of Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975) and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now(1973), which will be presented on an archival 35mm print on Valentine’s Day along with 35mm presentations of Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) and Bong Joon Ho’s Mother (2009) for the ultimate relationship horror trifecta.

Organized by Florence Almozini, Tyler Wilson, and Lulu Wang.
