Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles

New Releases

“A lively…energetic, fast-moving portrait. Workman provides a strong visual sense of the world in which Welles lived and worked.” The Hollywood Reporter

This lively documentary ranges far and wide as it examines the enigma of Orson Welles as a Hollywood star, colossal director, and—for some—equally colossal disappointment. (He said, with a smile: “I always liked Hollywood very much. It just wasn’t reciprocated.”) This look at one of the true larger-than-life characters of the 20th century includes all sorts of gems, for example Welles himself, telling stories and cheerfully contradicting himself from one interview to the next.

Involuntary

The Films of Ruben Ostlund

"The bitterly funny, multistrand “Involuntary,” from 2008, is a step forward in the director’s ambition." (Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times)

FREE FOR JBFC MEMBERS!

Östlund again interweaves unconnected stories that deconstruct social norms, employing a neutral camera observing life from fixed positions, nonprofessional actors playing versions of themselves, and a challenge to viewers to take a moral stand. Be it an actress trying to save face after committing a small crime, a gay prank committed by a herd of straight men, or a schoolteacher’s firm act of justice, Östlund mixes guilt, compromise, pride, and group mentality in this highly cerebral examination of what it means to be self-conscious.

WITH the short:

Autobiographical Scene Number 6882: Whatever playfulness may be behind the number in the title, this experimental-looking short is quickly taken over by a sense of impending doom as a young man is about to jump off a bridge with his friends watching. An intriguing study in group behavior and the nature of peer pressure that should be seen as a rehearsal for Involuntary. • 2005. 9 m. NR. Sweden, in Swedish with subtitles. 

Free tickets available at the box office ONLY (in advance or on the day of the screening) while tickets last. Advance tickets may also be purchased online.

NT Live: Behind the Beautiful Forevers

World Stage on Screen

Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.

LIVE FROM LONDON. India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he’s as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a ‘first-class person’, while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum’s first female graduate. But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighbourhood.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk: The Case of the Three Sided Dream

Special Events

"If critics haven’t given him a mountaintop position next to Mingus and Coleman, they keep pushing Kirk up the slope—just as they have with Sun Ra since his death. Kirk’s praises are still being sung by musicians—and not just by jazz players of his own generation." (Geoffrey Himes, Jazz Times)


There was no one like jazz virtuoso Rahsaan Roland Kirk. A seemingly superhuman musical force who was never slowed down by his disabilities, he played until the day he died—often on several instruments at a time. His compelling performances, playful banter, and political activism are on abundant display in this vibrant documentary. Part of the 7th Annual ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival In venues throughout NY March 12-18.

Diplomacy

German Cinema Now

Schlöndorff’s “precise, restless camera creates a feeling of claustrophobic sus- pense as the plot races against the clock.” (New York Times)

As the Allies march toward Paris, Hitler decrees that the city not fall into enemy hands—even if it means destroying it. The Nazi general in charge grimly lays plans to bring down the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the bridges over the Seine. With one night to save the city, Swedish Consul General Raoul Nordling shows up at the general’s Hotel Meurice headquarters, and a breathless game of cat-and-mouse ensues. From the great Volker Schlöndorff (The Tin Drum).

To get out of a jam, a con man named Nick seizes on a mix-up at the lakeside retreat of elderly psychoana- lyst Curt Ledig and poses as his new caregiver. The two forge an odd-couple friendship—but Curt is wise to what’s going on and, digging deep into Nick’s psyche, breaks him down, exposing the neuroses churning beneath a hard exterior. A smart, original comedy. Copresented with the Goethe-Institut New York.

Beloved Sisters

German Cinema Now

“An enthralling, gorgeously mounted depiction.” (Variety)

The Tin Drum

German Cinema Now

A Classic Restored. At the age of three, Oskar Matzerath rejects the hypocrisy of the adult world and refuses to grow older, screaming and frantically beating his drum while those around him march toward WWII. The director’s cut of this masterpiece, which won an Academy Award and the Palme d’Or at Cannes, includes 20 minutes of footage never seen before. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

Stations of the Cross

German Cinema Now


“A piercing examination of the interplay between fundamental dogma and family dysfunction.” (Observer, UK)


With her confirmation approaching, Maria is torn between a strained family life, adolescent feelings, and her devotion to an extreme version of Catholicism. The girl’s spiritual struggle is captured in 14 single-shot tableaux, mirroring the Stations along Christ’s walk to Calvary. A powerful depiction of the impossible demands of a strict faith in the modern world.

A Coffee in Berlin

German Cinema Now


“As sure of itself visually in its black-and-white evocations of Berlin as its protagonist is unsure of himself and his future.” (Chicago Tribune)


Jan Ole Gerster’s wry, quirky feature debut, which swept the 2013 German Oscars, paints a day in the life of 20-something slacker Niko, who’s going nowhere fast. Stylishly shot and with a snappy jazz soundtrack, this downbeat comedy is a love letter to Berlin and the Generation Y experience, reminiscent of early Jim Jarmusch.

An Evening with Novelist Richard Price

Special Events

"As celebrated as he is for his books like Lush Life and Freedomland, and his screenwriting (The Color of Money, Sea of Love, and a much heralded residency on David Simon and Ed Burns’s The Wire), Price may be even more admired, in certain pockets of literary hipster land, for his research. There are few people, it seems, who have spent as much time in the back of a radio car (or with those who spend most of their time avoiding that fate) without eventually needing an attorney as Price." (Matthew Lynch, Vanity Fair)

Novelist and screenwriter Richard Price will join Janet Maslin for a free-wheeling conversation about his stellar writing career. Price's latest novel, The Whites (written under the pseudonym Harry Brandt) is an electrifying story of a New York City police detective under siege. The program will also feature clips from Price's sizable body of work, including Clockers, an adaptation of Price's novel of the same name which also served as inspiration for the acclaimed HBO series, The Wire.

Q&A Richard Price with JBFC Board President Janet Maslin. Copies of The Whites will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of The Village Bookstore.

“The story of a woman caught up in...long-ago events that exert a fearful grip on the present.” (New York Times

Katrine is living in Norway, happily married and reunited with her mother (Liv Ullmann) after a long separation: She’s the product of a scheme in which Nazi soldiers impregnated Scandinavian women and took the babies to Germany to raise a master race.

Play

The Films of Ruben Ostlund

Play makes the barbed implication that the thieves go unchallenged because those who might stop them fear appearing racist. But it is provocative simply in showing how trust is gained and kept..." (Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times)

This is Östlund at his most politically incorrect. Based on a much-discussed real event, this polarizing film plays the race card in a brilliant, discomfiting manner—showing that it can be used as both a weapon and a shield, no matter your perspective. The story, in a nutshell, involves five black teens who scam three white boys of their phones. As the perpetrators play games with their victims, Östlund plays with us, challenging our very notions of blame and shame.

WITH the short:

Incident by a Bank: Winner of the prize for Best Short Film in Berlin, this reconstruction of an actual bank heist the director himself witnessed unfolds in a perfectly favored slow tracking, and zooming in and out within the frame in postproduction, Östlund follows observers’ varied reactions with refreshing lightness. It’s like a mirror placed in front of the audience. • 2009. 10 m. NR. Sweden, in Swedish with subtitles.

Two business consultants have everything under control. For six years, the young men have traveled to sometimes dangerous parts of the developing world to feed their international clients’ greed, hardly ever leaving their hotel rooms. But when their plans for ascending the corporate ranks don’t work out, a fight for survival ensues and the outside world comes crashing in. Copresented with the Goethe-Institut New York.

Memories of Murder

Bong Joon-ho Retrospective


"Bong builds real suspense and plays the chilling moments straight while leaving himself room for nonsense and horseplay." (Boston Globe)


The search for a serial killer is the focus of this complex, riveting film. When the hardnosed detective arrives from the big city to straighten out the investigation, the culture of corruption during the 1980s military dictatorship is as frustrating as the incomplete information the local cops provide. With his second feature, Bong was already in the spotlight, winning top prizes in South Korea and embraced by critics and audiences

Tales of the Grim Sleeper

Special Events

Tales is less a portrait of [Lonnie] Franklin himself than a panoramic survey of the sociological forces that aided and abetted his killing spree. What emerges, finally, is an urgent distress call from one of America’s many, predominately black inner cities cast adrift by decades of municipal neglect and institutional racism." (Scott Foundas, Variety)


Official Selection, 2014 Telluride Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, The New York Film Festival. 
Master documentary provocateur Nick Broomfield (Kurt & CourtneyBiggie and Tupac) is in stunning form in Tales of the Grim Sleeper, a gripping and profound look at a serial killer who targeted black women in South Central Los Angeles for over 20 years. In scenes building to an incredibly powerful conclusion, Broomfield gives voice to the victims while also conveying a grave injustice that extends well beyond this case. 

Copies of LA Times reporter Jill Leovy's book, Ghettoside, "A timely look at an urban police force's track record in investigating black homicides," will be available for purchase courtesy of the Village Bookstore.

Bong Joon-ho Retrospective


"If this madly entertaining movie has a fault, it's that too ingenious for the genre it ostensibly inhabits." (Time Magazine


The talk of the Cannes Film Festival and an international hit, The Host boasts emerges from the river to crush, eat, and grab its victims—and the family that isn’t going to let their little girl go without a fight. Silly, gravely serious, ebullient, and poignant, it was the highest-grossing film in Korean history at the time.

Force Majeure

The Films of Ruben Ostlund


“A searing, slow burn of a movie that puts a marriage chillingly— and thrillingly—in the crosshairs, where the smallest crack radiates in all directions.” (Brian Ackerman, Programming Director)


Östlund’s new film won a major prize in Cannes and took the Toronto Film Festival audience by storm, consequently being nominated for a Golden Globe and shortlisted for the Foreign-Language Oscar. It’s the much awaited recognition for a daring and singular filmmaker, thanks to a crystal-clear story of a marriage that slowly melts after a spectacular incident at a winter resort: As an avalanche bears down on the family, the husband flees the scene, leaving his wife and kids behind. The shiny mirror of social etiquette—reinforced by Östlund’s cruelly rigid direction—is forever cracked when the man’s
