#318 - The Filmmakers of Notturno and Identifying Features
This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast we’re presenting conversations on Notturno and Identifying Features, two equally impressive films, both of which are New York Times Critic's Picks and are now playing in our Virtual Cinema. The first discussion features Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Gianfranco Rosi, in conversation with New York Film Festival’s Director of Programming Dennis Lim on Rosi’s latest immersive work of nonfiction. Shot over the course of three years along the borders of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon, Notturno is a nighttime ramble through a region rocked and shattered by catastrophe and violence. The second conversation centers on Identifying Features and includes director Fernanda Valadez, and co-writer and producer Astrid Rondero in a dialogue with FLC's Assistant Programmer Dan Sullivan at the 49th New Directors/New Films. The film is a suspenseful slow burn, equally constructed of moments of beauty and horror surrounding a mother's search for the truth about her son. Nationwide tickets to Notturno and Identifying Features are now available: virtual.filmlinc.org

#315 - Wong Kar Wai, Christopher Doyle & Brigitte Lin on Ashes of Time Redux
This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, join a conversation with Wong Kar Wai, cinematographer Christopher Doyle, and actress Brigitte Lin from the 46th NYFF in 2008, moderated by J. Hoberman. Watch Ashes of Time Redux in our Wong Kar Wai retrospective, available nationwide: filmlinc.org/wong A film whose complicated production took such a toll on Wong that he wrote and shot Chungking Express during its editing process, Ashes of Time Redux is a hallucinatory wuxia like no other. First released in 1994 and then re-edited and re-scored in 2008, Wong’s time-slipping picaresque takes loose inspiration from Jin Yong’s novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes, focusing on a lovesick, embittered mercenary (Leslie Cheung), who acts as an agent for other swordsmen of fortune. Working with regular production designer William Chang, cinematographer Christopher Doyle, and a superb ensemble (Brigitte Lin, Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung, and Jacky Cheung), Wong constructs an intricate, enigmatic vision of ancient warriors ensnared by the play of time and memory. An NYFF46 selection.
