The complete schedule has been announced for Jacques Tourneur, Fearmaker, a wide-ranging retrospective and NYC’s largest in decades, taking place December 14 – January 3! Tourneur mixed the uncanny with the psychological, located even the most outlandish premises within familiar spheres, and roguishly circumvented financial constraints through his singular artistry. Tickets go on sale November 30. See the full schedule at filmlinc.org/tourneur
Wang Bing joins us this weekend to present the New York premiere of his new opus Dead Souls (playing Sunday) and his debut masterpiece West of the Tracks (playing Friday & Saturday in three parts, for the price of one ticket). "Film is just a tool, a platform that takes you wherever you want to go. There are no fixed rules or policies about what you should or should not do with cinema," the director tells @filmcommentmagazine.
"So I always try to keep an open mind: for me, the film image is a recording of the reality of human existence in a given historical, socio-economic and political context, but at the same time it contains emotions, beauty, something more abstract that is perhaps Art. Why limit cinema to only one thing?"
