Get ready for an exciting new doc film festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in April: “The Art of the Real”

“Despite its growing popularity, the documentary as we have come to know it, especially in the United States, too often emphasizes content over form, information over aesthetics,” noted Dennis Lim, Film Society’s Director of Programming. “We think of ‘Art of the Real ‘ as a necessary showcase for some of the most daring and unclassifiable work in contemporary film as well as a call for the documentary to be re-considered as art.”

The Film Society of Lincoln Center recently announced its monthly documentary film screening series will take an exciting new shape this April, that of an annual two-week series Programmed by by Lim and independent curator/UnionDocs’ advisor Rachael Rakes. Announced titles include the opening night film La última película (from Mark Peranson and Raya Martin), Actress  Purchase online Cheap cheap nootropil Buy Purchase (from Robert Greene, which will close the fest), as well as work from Harun Farocki, Gane Gillooly, Mati Diop, Jesse McLean, Amie Siegel, James Benning, Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab and more.
