New Directors/New Films
Wed, 28.04.2021 -
The Museum of Modern Art and Film at Lincoln Center present the 50th anniversary edition of New Directors/New Films. Throughout its rich, half-century history, the festival has celebrated filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema, and whose daring work pushes the envelope in unexpected ways. This year’s festival will introduce 27 features and 11 shorts to audiences nationwide in the MoMA and FLC virtual cinemas, and to New Yorkers at Film at Lincoln Center. To celebrate this year’s 50-year milestone, MoMA and FLC will also present a free virtual retrospective looking back on the festival’s history.
The following two films are presented in collaboration with the German Film Office:
Wim Wenders, The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick (1972)
Jonas Bak, Wood and Water (2021)
