New Directors New Films
As in past editions, the 2014 New Directors/New Films series in New York, now in its 44th year, organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art, offered a wide range of cinematographic and narrative approaches. From hundreds of films Dennis Lim from the Film Society and Rojendra Roy from Moma selected 24 feature and 16 shorts, mostly the filmmakers’ first or second productions. They covered superb traditional departures (Creation of Meaning), issue oriented ...
New Directors/New Films, the program of film discoveries co-presented by New York's Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, has been a strong launching pad for debut directors over the past four decades.

Following sold out screenings at New Directors/New Films Festival, the Spring film showcase that concluded yesterday, arthouse specialty distributor IndiePix will release acclaimed Iranian video/photographer Shirin Neshat’s directorial debut WOMEN WITHOUT MEN. The film opens theatrically in Los Angeles on April 9, Washington, DC on April 30 followed by a mid-May release in New York. A national platform rollout continues with home video and digital release slated for the fall.
One would imagine that a film entitled I KILLED MY MOTHER would be a wild ride of incestuous violence, but Montreal-based Xavier Dolan’s semi-autobiographical debut feature is more of a testament to the loving bonds between mother and son, no matter how ferocious and unpleasant. The film, which marks the emergence of an enfant terrible auteur in the 20-year-old former child star Dolan, will be the closing night presentation of this year’s New Directors New Films on Sunday ev...
WOMEN WITHOUT MEN (Shirin Neshat)
For most people, a trip to the cinema is a welcome escapism from the harshness of the world and its problems. For others, films with political subjects or contexts are sought out for a population hungry to engage and feeling starved for perspective and analysis. While New Directors New Films is not an overtly political affair, it is hard to avoid the powerful political discourses that careen through some of the films in this year’s pro...
For the first time in memory (if my faulting memory serves me well and it increasingly does NOT), the New Directors New Films showcase opened last evening with a documenary feature. This annual rite of the Spring film season, co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Film Department of the Museum of Modern Art, was ushered in by BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK, a fascinating look at the New York Times photographer and his love/hate obsession with the city he calls both his mu...

Questions of sex and physical copulation always excited mankind. In all centuries! In 20-th century the mankind has gone through so-called sexual revolution - free love, free feelings, free sex. Now, in 21 century, people were satiated with sex, a sensuality, a pornography and have thought up a new way of the protest: against sex in general! There was a new movement - movement of the asexuals! Sex destroys the person, speaks asexuals. Physical copulation stirs to spiritual development of the person, they approve. Whether they are right?

Never like that! The concept is: sex could destroy your individuality! But the man-hero will find the way how to fight for his love! And of course: Love always wins! Lot’s of music, dances, sudden turning-points…

Saturday, June 10----An Israeli director for a Southern Gothic story set in 1960s Florida may seem like an odd choice, but for Ido Mizrahy, the director of the American Independent film THINGS THAT HANG FROM TREES, his foreigness allowed him to bring subtle observations to this story of small town life.
The film, which is screening in the American Independents Competition here, is written and based on the autobiographical novella of Aaron Louis Tordini. Tordini grew up in St. Augustine, Florid...
