Lincoln Center offers free documentary film series

Feb 4, 2013

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the Ford Foundation have formed a partnership to present a free film series, “JustFilms at AtriumFlix.” The new series will present both documentary and feature films selected by seven acclaimed American filmmakers that advance a message of social justice.

The filmmakers in the series are: Alexandra Pelosi (Journeys with George), Alan Berliner (Wide Awake, Nobody’s Business), Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, The Namesake, The Reluctant Fundamentalist), Andrew Dosunmu (Restless City), Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Detropia, Jesus Camp), and John Sayles (Matewan, Brother from Another Planet, City of Hope.)

The series opened on Jan. 30 with Andrew Dosunmu and his film Restless City, and featured a conversation prior to the screening with the filmmaker and Cinereach’s Philipp Engelhorn. Restless City tells the story of an African immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City. The series will run for six months, January through June 2013, one night per month, at the David Rubenstein Atrium in New York City. All screenings will be preceded by an interview with the filmmaker.

“JustFilms at AtriumFlix is the first time we have presented a free film series to our audience,” says Rebecca Arnold, director of the David Rubenstein Atrium. “Key social and environmental challenges may be seen through the medium of film to dramatize their gravity and highlight their importance. We are proud to be associated with the Ford Foundation’s JustFilms and this initiative that shines a light on these critical subjects.”

Neither significantly better nor worse than its predecessor, the belated Sin City sequel is more of a repeat, rather than a continuation, of the original. More »
