  • Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinemas
  • Description:

    Music Box Films is proud to announce the release of GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM, the riveting, multiple award-winning drama from sibling directors and writers Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz about an Israeli woman seeking to finalize her divorce (“gett”), and who finds herself put on trial by her country’s religious marriage laws.  This French co-production is scheduled to open on February 13 in New York (Lincoln Plaza Cinema) and Los Angeles (Royal) followed by a national roll out.

    In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a marriage or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husband’s full consent.  Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has been applying for a divorce for three years, but her religiously devout husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian, Casino Royale, Persepolis) continually refuses.  His cold intransigence, Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure

    Colorful, commanding, and detailed, the captivating pieces in Social Studies tell histories not taught in classrooms. Layering collaged images and textured paint onto mid-century classroom maps, Joyce Kozloff transposes new perspectives onto archaic world views.

    An original member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, applied and decorative art practices are often the basis for Kozloff’s large-scale public and fine art works. Since the 1990s, she has been using maps and globes to explore issues of social and institutional injustice.

  • Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinemas
  • Description:

    Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of 3 HEARTS, a new beguiling drama from acclaimed French director Benoît Jacquot (Farewell, My Queen) about destiny and missed connections, featuring some of France’s top actors, that explores the age-old moral conundrum of a love triangle. 3 HEARTS is scheduled to open in New York on Friday, March 13 (at Lincoln Plaza) followed by a national roll-out.

    A twist of fate leaves a hapless accountant romantically torn between two sisters. While traveling through a small provincial town, reserved and melancholic Parisian Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde, Man Bites Dog) meets by chance Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris.  Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning.  A thwarted plan for a second meeting sends each in a separate direction-Sylvie reunites with her ex and leaves France whereupon Marc meets and woos Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni)—blissfully unaware that she’s Syl

  • The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

  • Mar 24, 2015 to Apr 7, 2015
  • Location: Film Forum
  • Description:

    Michel Houellebecq, possibly the most widely read living French writer, was believed kidnapped on September 16, 2011. But was he really? After a flurry of media reports of his abduction, the story goes cold and Houellebecq, famously reclusive, refuses to set the record straight. Now he goes one step further by starring as himself in a film that purports to tell the tale. 

    With a nod to O. Henry's short story, The Ransom of Red Chief, the film explores the dramatic territory where the personae of criminal and victim are remade in unexpected and surprisingly amusing ways. -Karen Cooper, Director, Film Forum

Her previous books include May '68 and its Afterlives and Fast Cars, Clean Bodies: Decolonization and the Reordering of French Culture.  Eric Hazan is the founder of the publisher La Fabrique and the author of several books, including Notes on the Occupation and the highly acclaimed The Invention of Paris.
