Opening November 18
Jerzy Skolimowski, 2022, Poland/Italy, 86m
Polish, Italian, English, and French with English subtitles
At age 84, legendary director Jerzy Skolimowski (The Deep End, Moonlighting) has directed one of his spryest, most visually inventive films, following the travels of a peripatetic donkey named EO. After being removed from the only life he’s ever known in a traveling circus, EO begins a journey across the Polish and Italian countryside, experiencing cruelty and kindness, captivity and freedom. Skolimowski imagines the animal’s mesmerizing journey as an ever-shifting interior landscape, marked by absurdity and warmth in equal measure, putting the viewer in the unique perspective of the protagonist. Skolimowski has constructed his own bold vision about the follies of human nature, seen from the ultimate outsider’s perspective. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. A Sideshow and Janus Films release. Tickets on sale now.
Q&A with Jerzy Skolimowski and co-writer Ewa Piaskowska on November 19 at 6:15pm screening
Introduction by Jerzy Skolimowski and co-writer Ewa Piaskowska on November 19 at 9:00pm screening

Opening November 23––One Week Only
Nikyatu Jusu, 2022, USA, 99m
English and Wolof with English subtitles
A riveting Anna Diop commands nearly every frame of director Nikyatu Jusu’s feature debut, a breakout at this year’s Sundance, where it won the Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. In this psychologically complex fable of displacement tinged with supernatural horror, Diop plays Aisha, a woman recently emigrated from Senegal who is hired to care for the adorable daughter of an affluent couple (Michelle Monaghan and Morgan Spector) living in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood. Increasingly unsettled by the family’s volatile home life, though desperate to make enough money to bring over her young son from Senegal, Aisha begins to unravel, finding her life in America to be more nightmare than dream. Mixing domestic melodrama with American genre elements and West African folklore, Nanny is a spellbinding experience that defies expectation. A 2022 New Directors/New Films selection. A Blumhouse-Amazon Prime Video release. Tickets on sale now.

Opening November 23
All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
Laura Poitras, 2022, USA, 116m
In her essential, urgent, and arrestingly structured new documentary from Participant, Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Laura Poitras (Citizenfour) weaves two narratives: the fabled life and career of era-defining artist Nan Goldin and the downfall of the Sackler family, the pharmaceutical dynasty Goldin personally took on in her fight to hold accountable those responsible for the deadly opioid epidemic. Following her own personal struggle with opioid addiction, Goldin, who rose from the New York “No Wave” underground to become one of the great photographers of the late 20th century, put herself at the forefront of the battle against the Sacklers, both as an activist at art institutions around the world that had accepted millions from the family and as an advocate for the destigmatization of drug addiction. Illustrated with a rich trove of photographs by Goldin, who mesmerizingly narrates her own story, including her dysfunctional suburban upbringing, the loss of her teenage sister, and her community’s fight against AIDS in the 1980s, Poitras’s film is an enthralling, empowering work that stirringly connects personal tragedy, political awareness, and artistic expression. An NYFF60 Centerpiece selection. A NEON release. Tickets on sale now.
Q&A with Laura Poitras and P.A.I.N. activist Harry Cullen on November 26 at 6:15pm screening

December 2–11
Yoshimitsu Morita Retrospective
Across a 30-plus-year career, Yoshimitsu Morita (1950–2011) amassed one of the most fascinatingly idiosyncratic and prolific bodies of work in modern Japanese cinema. From his irreverently comic 1981 Something Like It to his 1983 breakout black comedy, The Family Game (a New Directors/New Films 1984 selection), to forays into melodrama (And Then, 1985), the hardboiled film (Deaths in Tokimeki, 1984), the pink film/roman porno (Top Stripper, 1982), horror (The Black House, 1999), and romantic drama (Haru, 1996), Morita’s work is marked by an incomparable sensitivity to the peaks and valleys of the inner landscape of Japanese society, a penchant for subtle injections of surreality to highlight the absurdity of certain aspects of Japanese life, an omnipresent sense of irony, and a boldly iconoclastic approach to visual composition. Morita’s films deal with many of the same subjects as those of his better-known predecessors and successors, but from a wholly singular point of view, yielding a richly heterogeneous and perpetually surprising oeuvre overdue for discovery. Join Film at Lincoln Center for a special retrospective of Morita’s films and get lost with us in his cinematic labyrinth of desire, chaos, and joy. Organized by Aiko Masubuchi and Dan Sullivan. Co-presented with the Japan Foundation. Tickets on sale November 10.

Opening December 2
The Eternal Daughter
Joanna Hogg, 2022, U.K./USA, 96m
One gloomy night, a middle-aged filmmaker and her elderly mother arrive at a fog-enshrouded hotel in the English countryside. An ominously brusque clerk, an apparent lack of other guests, and disturbing sounds from the room above theirs bode a less-than-welcome arrival. Yet all is not what it seems on this increasingly emotional trip into the past for these two women, one of whom has definitely been here before. Joanna Hogg (The Souvenir), among today’s foremost filmmakers, uses this Victorian Gothic scenario for an entirely surprising, impeccably crafted, and, finally, overwhelming excavation of a parent-child relationship and the impulse toward artistic creation. And Tilda Swinton, in a performance of rich, endless surprise, turns in one of the most remarkable acting feats in her astonishing career. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. An A24 release. Tickets on sale now

Opening December 16
The Super 8 Years
Annie Ernaux and David Ernaux-Briot, 2022, France, 60m
French with English subtitles
The French writer and 2022 Nobel Prize awardee Annie Ernaux, whose novels and memoirs have gained her a devoted following (and whose autobiographical L’Événement was adapted just last year into the critically acclaimed film Happening), opens a treasure trove with this delicate journey into her family’s memory. Compiled from gorgeously textured home movie images from 1972 to 1981—when her first books were published, her sons became teenagers, and her husband, Philippe, brought an 8mm film camera everywhere they went—this portrait of a time, place, and moment of personal and political significance takes us from holidays and family rituals in bourgeois suburban France to trips abroad in Albania and Egypt, Spain and the USSR. Supplying her own introspective voiceover, Ernaux and her co-filmmaker, her son David, guide the viewer through fragments of a decade, diffuse and vivid in equal measure. The Super 8 Years is a remarkable visual extension of Ernaux’s ongoing literary project to make sense of the mysterious past and the unknowable future. An NYFF60 Spotlight selection. A Kino Lorber release. Tickets on sale now.

December 16–22, 6:15pm daily
The Kingdom I
Lars von Trier, 1994, Denmark, 284m
Danish and Swedish with English subtitles
Lars von Trier first made a name for himself directing a prodigiously deranged trilogy of films about the traumas of 20th-century Europe (The Element of CrimeEpidemic, and Europa), but it was his 1994 television outing, a medical-supernatural miniseries co-directed with Morten Arnfred, that brought him international acclaim and helped establish the rigorous style that he would formalize one year later with Dogme 95. A singular blend of horror, humor, and melodrama, The Kingdom I centers around the neurosurgical ward of Rigshospitalet—Denmark’s most technologically advanced hospital, which happens to be built on top of old bleaching ponds in Copenhagen—where strange and otherworldly events have started to occur, much to the dismay of doctors and patients: a child’s voice cries out to a patient in an elevator shaft, a phantom ambulance appears and disappears, and a pregnant doctor’s fetus grows at unnatural speed. Perhaps the most eccentric, turbulent television series of the 1990s after Twin Peaks, four-episode The Kingdom I unfolds, as the critic Howard Hampton put it in Film Comment, “As if St. Elsewhere were infiltrated by the restless souls of Poltergeist.” A MUBI release. Restored from the original S16mm prints by Zentropa. Tickets on sale now. 

Please note: There will be a 30-minute intermission during the screening. 

December 23–27, 6:15pm daily
The Kingdom II
Lars von Trier, 1997, Denmark, 295m
Danish and Swedish with English subtitles
Heads continue to roll in the four-part sequel to Lars von Trier’s The Kingdom I, where the hospital’s otherworldly forces have been manifesting among its staff and patients, including in its youngest: the newborn offspring of a demon-doctor (Udo Kier, in both roles). Effortlessly weaving a tapestry of bizarre plots, including a satanic cult, doctor masonry, malpractice victims, zombie poison, and a cancerous liver implant, Trier—who delivers a tuxedoed outro after each episode—ramps up the absurd humor behind the show’s ethereal and corporeal phenomena. The second installment takes twisted pleasure in exploring Denmark’s bureaucratic healthcare system and connecting it to humanity’s darkest impulses, building a masterpiece of horror-satire that is as brutally unnerving as it is hilarious. An NYFF35 selection. A MUBI release. Restored from the original S16mm prints by Zentropa. Tickets on sale now. 

Please note: There will be a 30-minute intermission during the screening. 

December 28–January 5, 6:15pm daily
The Kingdom Exodus
Lars von Trier, 2022, Denmark, 295m
Danish, English, and Swedish with English subtitles
Lars von Trier has directed a third season of his incomparable television series, The Kingdom, which began in 1994 and helped establish the Danish filmmaker’s reputation for jolting imagery and penchant for layered, unpredictable storytelling. The show’s legions of fans will be delighted by his dark-comic return to the misfit world of Copenhagen’s Rigshospitalet, once again ruled equally by sinister supernatural visions and at times hilarious administrative incompetence. This time, the hospital’s workers are aware of having been in a show and complain that the scoundrel Lars von Trier has given them a bad name. Our guides to the increasing madness are Karen (Bødil Jorgensen), a curious somnambulist who voluntarily checks herself in after wandering to the Kingdom in her sleep, and the new Swedish head neurosurgeon, Stig, Jr. (Mikael Persbrandt), desperate to follow in the footsteps of his father, the original series’ dastardly Dr. Stig Helmer. Featuring the return of such original cast members as Ghita Nørby, Peter Mygind, Søren Pilmark, and Udo Kier, as well as appearances from Alexander Skarsgård. An NYFF60 Spotlight selection. A MUBI release. Tickets on sale now.

Please note: There will be a 30-minute intermission during the screening. 

Opening December 23
Marie Kreutzer, 2022, Austria, 113m
German with English subtitles
In a perceptive, nuanced performance, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) quietly dominates the screen as Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who begins to see her life of royal privilege as a prison as she reaches her 40th birthday. Marie Kreutzer boldly imagines Elisabeth’s cloistered, late-19th-century world within the Austro-Hungarian Empire with both austere realism and fanciful anachronism, while staying true and intensely close to the woman’s private melancholy and political struggle amidst a crumbling, combative marriage and escalating scrutiny. Star and director have together created a remarkable vision of a strong-willed political figure whose emergence from a veiled, corseted existence stands for a Europe on the cusp of major, irrevocable transformation. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. An IFC Films release.
Sneak Previews on December 15 with Marie Kreutzer and Vicky Krieps in person and ticket-holder reception! Tickets on sale November 10, with pre-sale access for FLC Members on November 9. Learn more here.

Opening January 6
Carla Simón, 2022, Spain/Italy, 120m
Catalan and Spanish with English subtitles
Winner of the Golden Bear at the 2022 Berlinale festival, Carla Simón’s follow-up to her acclaimed childhood drama Summer 1993 is a ruminative, lived-in portrait of a rural family in present-day Catalonia whose way of life is rapidly changing. The Solé clan live in a small village, annually harvesting peaches for local business and export. However, their livelihood is put in jeopardy by the looming threat of the construction of solar panels, which would necessitate the destruction of their orchard. From this simple narrative, pitting agricultural tradition against the onrushing train of modern progress, Simón weaves a marvelously textured film that moves to the unpredictable rhythms and caprices of nature and family life. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. A MUBI release.

Opening January 13
Saint Omer
Alice Diop, 2022, France, 118m
French with English subtitles
Rama (Kayije Kagame), a successful journalist and author living in Paris, has come to Saint-Omer, a town in the north of France, to attend the trial of a young Senegalese woman, Laurence (Guslagie Malanga), who allegedly murdered her baby daughter. Although Laurence admits to killing the child, she cannot or will not provide motivation, claiming it was a kind of sorcery out of her control. Rama’s plan to write about Laurence in a book inspired by the Medea myth increasingly unravels as she becomes overwhelmed by the case, and reckons with memories of her immigrant mother as well as her own impending motherhood. In her consummate fiction feature debut, Alice Diop (We) constructs an arresting yet highly sensitive, superbly acted film of constantly revealing layers. Saint Omer is at once a tense courtroom drama, a work of abstracted psychological portraiture, an inquiry into human agency, and a provocative examination of the limits of myth and cross-cultural knowledge. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. A SUPER release.

Opening January 27
One Fine Morning
Mia Hansen-Løve, 2022, France, 112m
French with English subtitles
Few filmmakers are as adept at exploring the contours of modern love and grief as Mia Hansen-Løve (Bergman Island), whose intensely poignant and deeply personal latest drama stars Léa Seydoux as Sandra, a professional translator and single mother at a crossroads. Her father (Pascal Greggory), rapidly deteriorating from a neurological illness, will soon require facility care, and her new lover (Melvil Poupaud) is a married dad whose unavailability only seems to draw her nearer to him, despite—or because of—the fact that she’s going through an overwhelming time in her life. Hansen-Løve, so finely observant of the small nuances of human interaction, creates, in harmonious concert with a magnificent Seydoux, a complicated portrait of a woman torn between romantic desire and familial tragedy that is a marvel of emotional and formal economy. An NYFF60 Main Slate selection. A Sony Pictures Classics release.
