A Separation

New Releases

"A thrilling domestic drama that offers acute insights into human motivations and behavior" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)

Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language film, A Separation, from writer-director Asghar Farhadi, is easily the most critically acclaimed drama of the year, a riveting tale of a troubled marriage caught in the gears of everyday life in modern day Tehran.

Friends with Kids

New Releases

"The film’s revelation is Adam Scott, a second-banana comic best known for obnoxious squirts. Easing back on caricature but taking nothing off his fastball, he recalls the young Alan Alda, coming on glib and finishing vulnerable—much like this marvelous film." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)

A poignant comedy from writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt (Ira and Abby, Kissing Jessica Stein) about the last two singles in a group of married friends who believe that kids and marriage don't mix, but kids and friendship do. Jon Hamm (AMC's Mad Men), Adam Scott (NBC's Parks and Recreation),  Edward Burns (Newlyweds) and Bridesmaids’ stars, Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, round out the ensemble cast.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

New Releases

“A very clever tale of modern ecoissues intertwined with old-style political intrigues and New Age romance.” (LA Times)

The latest from director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, My Life as a Dog) and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) has been producing standing ovations at festivals. It’s a quick-witted comedy about a wealthy sheik who wants to bring sport fishing to his desert country—and he just may be able to pull it off, with the help of a beautiful consultant (Emily Blunt) and a stuffy but adorable scientist (Ewan McGregor).

Lasse Hallström. 2011. 112 m. PG-13. UK. CBS Films.

Tropical Malady

Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: “I was like a storm on the set. I was possessed. I wasn’t interested in the plot so much as in conveying the brutality of love and memory. When it was completed, I felt much lighter and more human.”

An ambitious examination of a dashed love affair between a soldier and a country boy who disappears, perhaps returning as a jungle predator. Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes and a New York Film Festival selection.

Q&A Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Andrew Lampert, Associate Professor of Film, SUNY-Purchase, and Curator of Collections, Anthology Film Archives. Lampert has been with AFA since 1998 and was formerly Director of Programming for the New York Underground Film Festival.  A graduate of Bard College and the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House in Rochester, Lampert is also an artist whose work has been widely screened and performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Russia.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 2004. 118 m. NR. Thailand, Thai. Strand Releasing.
