    #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.

    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.

    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.

    This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re sharing a conversation following the U.S. premiere of Bertrand Bonello’s Zombi Child at the 57th New York Film Festival. Opening this Friday at Film at Lincoln Center, the film is an unconventional plunge into horror-fantasy that feverishly dissolves boundaries of time and space as it questions colonialist mythmaking. Moderated by programmer Florence Almozini, they discussed voodoo, Haitian history, boarding schools, the two-part shoot, and more.
