  • Mysteries of Lisbon Opens

  • Aug 4, 2011 to Aug 19, 2011
  • Location: Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center and IFC Center
  • Description: Spanning three decades, MYSTERIES OF LISBON plunges us into a whirlwind of adventures, coincidences, revelations, vengeance, betrayals and love affairs, wrapped in a rhapsodic voyage that takes us to Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, and as far as Brazil. Evoking the complex intertwined narratives of Charles Dickens, the film’s central character is Joao, the illegitimate child of an ill-fated romance between two members of the aristocracy who are forbidden to marry, and follows Joao’s quest to discover the truth of his parentage. Nothing, and nobody, is first as it/she/he appears in this intoxicating spiral of stories within stories within stories, filmed by Ruiz with gorgeous period design, a fluid, pirouetting camera, and a stellar French and Portuguese cast including up and coming actresses Clotilde Hesmé and Léa Seydoux.

  • Description:


    Multiple award-winning French-American filmmaker Anne Aghion has spent over 10 years filming in post-genocide Rwanda where she made four films. Her latest, MY NEIGHBOR MY KILLER, was in Official Selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, and has since been shown around the world, received numerous awards and garnered unanimous critical praise.

    Assumpta Mugiraneza is a Rwandan social psychologist and political scientist who has done extensive work on memory, history and hate speech.


    Together, they’re creating IRIBA CENTER FOR MULTIMEDIA HERITAGE in Kigali, Rwanda. IRIBA Center, whose name means “the source” in Kinyarwanda, will gather a century of Rwanda’s audiovisual history from sources in Africa and Europe to make it free and accessible to the public.

    Since 1994, all Rwandans share genocide as their central legacy. Nearly two decades later, as they search for a path to long-lasting recovery and peace, discovering -or re-discovering- their common history and cultural identity is essen

  • "Mozart's Sister" Opens

  • Aug 19, 2011 at 8:00am to Aug 25, 2011 at 3:00pm
  • Location: Film Society of Lincoln Center, Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
  • Description:


    Written, directed and produced by René Féret, MOZART’S SISTER is a re-imagined account of the early life of Maria Anna “Nannerl” Mozart (played by Marie Féret, the director’s daughter). Nannerl is five years older than Wolfgang (David Moreau) and a musical prodigy in her own right. Originally the featured performer, she gives way to Wolfgang as the main attraction as their father Leopold (Marc Barbe) tours his talented offspring before the royal courts of pre-French Revolution Europe. Forbidden to play the violin or compose as she approaches marriageable age, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed on her gender. But a friendship with the son and daughter of Louis XV offers her ways to challenge the established sexual and social order...



    Directed by René Féret.
    Stars Marie Féret, Marce Barbé, Delphine Chuillot, David Moreau, Clovis Fouin.

  • Tiken Jah Fakoly a New York

  • Aug 19, 2011 at 7:00pm to Aug 20, 2011 at 12:00am
  • Location: SOB's [Sounds of Brazil]
  • Description:

    Vendredi 19 août, SOB’s va accueillir la voix du Reggae Roots Africain, Tiken Jah Fakoly. Figure emblématique de la protest-song ivoirienne Tiken Jah Fakoly se passionne, très tôt, pour les rythmes chauds du reggae. Depuis ses premières cassettes publiées en Côte d’Ivoire en 1993, Tiken Jah Fakoly utilise son art et ses chansons comme une arme de dénonciation, de condamnation, d'opposition mais aussi de conciliation.

    Avec son 8ème album « African Révolution » sorti fin 2010,  le chanteur ivoirien change la donne de son reggae africain en s'accompagnant d'instruments traditionnels mandingues. 

    « African Révolution » s’impose comme un jalon, non seulement pour l’artiste, mais pour toute la scène reggae. Une bouffée d’air frais, exemple qui va donner du grain à moudre à toute la nouvelle génération... Mais avant tout cet album transcende les genres et projette un son nouveau, ancré dans la tradition et résolument moderne, comme cette Afrique qui ne cesse de nous charmer et de nous étonner.
