NYFF: O Brother Where Art Thou reunion set
The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced its Special Events and Revivals lineup for this year’s New York Film Festival. Among the celebrated works: a special 15th anniversary screening of Joel and Ethan Coen’s O Brother, Where Art Thou? with the directors and the cast members, as well as, fittingly, a musical performance.
Also on the slate for the festival honoring world cinema is the world premiere of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Junun, a documentary about Jonny Greenwood, a frequent Anderson collaborator who traveled to northern India to record an album with an Israeli musician Shye Ben Tzur and others. The festival will also present the North American premire of the Brian De Palma biopic De Palma from Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, as well as foreign-language selections like László Nemes’s Son of Saul, a film from Hungary about Auschwitz that won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.
Finally, Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, which works to restore and preserve films, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and will screen seven of their newest restorations at the NYFF as well.
The New York Film Festival will take place from Sept. 25 to Oct. 11.
