    #282 - Eliza Hittman & Talia Ryder on Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Today, we’re sharing a special conversation with filmmaker Eliza Hittman and actress Talia Ryder following a patron screening of Never Rarely Sometimes Always at Film at Lincoln Center.

    Opening this weekend, the Sundance and Berlinale winner is an intimate portrayal of two teenage girls in rural Pennsylvania. Faced with an unintended pregnancy and a lack of local support, they embark across state lines to New York City on a fraught journey of friendship, bravery, and compassion.

    This Monday, March 16, Hittman will return to Film at Lincoln Center for a free talk, presented by Film Comment magazine, in which she’ll discuss her new film and already rich body of work.

    #281 - The Directors of Bacurau and Sônia Braga

    Today on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re sharing a conversation following the 57th New York Film Festival premiere of Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’s rollicking thriller Bacurau, which is now playing at Film at Lincoln Center. The film follows the community of a vibrant, richly diverse Brazilian town who fight back when they become the targets of a group of armed mercenaries.

    The directors and legendary actress Sônia Braga will return to FLC this Sunday for a Q&A at the 6:15pm screening. The directors will also be back next week on March 10, 12, and 13 for Q&As at the 6:15pm screenings. 

    From March 13-24, we’re also proud to present Mapping Bacurau, an explosive 13-film series featuring influences hand-picked by the directors of Bacurau. From spaghetti westerns to horror and sci-fi gems to Brazilian classics, the series features John Carpenter’s Starman in 70mm, the 4K restoration of Robin Hardy’s folk horror classic The Wicker Man, Sergio Leone’s western epic Duck, You Sucker! in 35mm, and much more.

    #280 - Corneliu Porumboiu on The Whistlers

    Today on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re sharing a conversation following the 57th New York Film Festival premiere of Corneliu Porumboiu’s The Whistlers.

    Opening this Friday at Film at Lincoln Center, the leading Romanian director’s first all-out genre film is a clever, swift, and elegant neo-noir with a wonderfully off-kilter central conceit. Following the adventures of a police detective who arrives on a mysterious island, the crime drama furthers the director’s explorations of the intricacies and limitations of language, but is also his most playful, even exuberant, film.

    #279 - Pedro Costa on Vitalina Varela

    Today on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re sharing a conversation following the 57th New York Film Festival premiere of Pedro Costa’s masterful new drama Vitalina Varela.

    Opening this Friday exclusively at Film at Lincoln Center, the film follows a Cape Verdean woman who returns to Fontainhas for her husband’s funeral after being separated for decades. The grief of the present and the ghosts of the past commingle in Costa’s ravishing film, which might be the director’s most visually extraordinary work.

    #277 - Angela Schanelec on I Was at Home, But...

    Today, we’re sharing a conversation with German master Angela Schanelec from the 57th New York Film Festival, where she presented her radical new film I Was at Home, But…

    Starting this Friday at Film at Lincoln Center, join the director in person for her first complete New York retrospective. The series will kick off with a sneak preview of her new film, which opens next Friday, February 14, at FLC. See showtimes & get tickets, plus see 3 or more films during the retrospective and save: https://www.filmlinc.org/schanelec

    Likely the most singular and underappreciated among the contemporary German filmmakers collectively known as the Berlin School (which also includes Christian Petzold, Thomas Arslan, and Valeska Grisebach), Schanelec makes films that achieve nothing less than the rendering of the human soul on screen.
