#338 - In Conversation with Steve McQueen on Small Axe
This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re presenting a conversation with Steve McQueen, the director of Small Axe, and Dennis Lim, Director of Programming for Film at Lincoln Center and the New York Film Festival. Among the most remarkable achievements in recent world cinema, Steve McQueen’s anthology Small Axe consists of five films that stirringly chronicle the experiences of London’s West Indian immigrant community across a tumultuous period from the 1960s through the 1980s. Each film is a distinct and singular work in its own right; taken together, they form a powerful, complex, immersive, and endlessly rich historical portrait of oppression, resistance, and survival, glimpsed through the prism of the post-colonial experience. Join Film at Lincoln Center to celebrate McQueen’s accomplishment with a series of screenings of all five films within Small Axe, including a special two-week run of Lovers Rock, the Opening Night Film at the 58th New York Film Festival. See Steve McQueen's Small Axe, along with over 30 other NYFF58 selections, at Film at Lincoln Center’s theaters during Big Screen Summer. All screenings of Alex Wheatle and Education are free to the general public! Reserve your tickets on our website while they're still available. Get tickets at filmlinc.org/nyff58redux

#337 - Directors Damiano & Fabio D’Innocenzo on the Making of Bad Tales
This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast we’re presenting a special conversation with Damiano & Fabio D’Innocenzo, the directors of Bad Tales, an Open Roads: New Italian Cinema 2021 selection, moderated by FLC’s Assistant Programmer Dan Sullivan and translated by Michael Moore. Bad Tales is an absorbing, richly traced group portrait of youth on the precipice of puberty, set on the outskirts of Rome. Our protagonists are the children of dysfunctional homes, and we observe them as they go about their daily lives amid the frequently apathetic, at times violent world of adults. An energetic work that is at once a kind of dark fairy tale and a stylish act of sociological inquiry, Bad Tales is a wild ride that captivatingly makes the case that the kids are not, in fact, alright. Bad Tales is now playing nationwide in our Virtual Cinema. Visit filmlinc.org/badtales for tickets.

Austin Collins, in anticipation of the filmmaker’s latest feature, Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue, which is now playing in our theaters. The preeminent cinematic chronicler of 21st-century China, Jia Zhangke turns his sights to the more distant past in his surprising, complexly wrought new documentary. In Shanxi province, where Jia grew up, the filmmaker gathers three prominent authors to create a tapestry of testimonies about the drastic changes in Chinese life and culture that began with the social revolution of the ’50s. Jia tells a wide-ranging, discursive story that functions as a reminder of the essential power of verbally passing down history to future generations. Continue the conversation with the filmmaker by tuning into a virtual live discussion on June 2 at 8PM, hosted by the Asia Society. Go to filmlinc.org/swimming for tickets and more information.
