  • New Yawk New Wave

  • Jan 22, 2013 at 7:00am to Jan 30, 2013 at 7:00pm
  • Location: Film Forum
  • Description:

    Not really a French event but more in parallel with the French New Wave and if anyone want to see NYC when it was gritty and had artistic individuality, catch the New Yawk New Wave series at Film Forum:

    "...highlights the artistic originality of independent filmmakers in New York in the fifties through the seventies. Its insightful selections offer a thesis: the epochal efflorescence of cinematic invention of the French New Wave that burst onto the scene in the late fifties and early sixties was matched—and, in some ways, foreshadowed by, and even influenced by—the burst of movie creativity from New York’s independent filmmakers of the era..."
    --New Yorker

  • NY Jewish Film Festival | Cabaret Berlin - The Wild Scene by Fabienne Rousso-Lenoir

  • Jan 22, 2013 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm
  • Location: Film Society of Lincoln Center
  • Description:

    Cabaret Berlin - The Wild Scene (NEW YORK PREMIERE)
    Fabienne Rousso-Lenoir | France/Germany | 2010 | 70m | German with English subtitles

    Built like a cabaret show and emceed by actor Ulrich Tukur, this mesmerizing and exuberant assemblage of archival film, sound, and visual culture offers a front row seat to the best show in town: Berlin’s Weimar Republic cabaret scene, home to Europe’s most innovative and experimental artists, writers, and musicians. Jewish entertainers played a leading role in the cabarets, and paid a hefty (and early) price for their wit and irreverence.
