Art of the Real 2017 Overview

The 4th annual Art of the Real

April 20-May 2

The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s showcase of nonfiction and hybrid presents just over 20 new works:

The series opens with Theo Anthony’s RAT FILM, an exploration of race and class in Baltimore as revealed through the city’s battles with vermin. Among the lineup are the North American premieres of two new works by the acclaimed German filmmaker Heinz Emigholz: 2+2=22 [THE ALPHABET] and STREETSCAPES [DIALOGUE]. Other North American premieres include Amir Muhammad and Badrul Hisham Ismail’s VOYAGE TO TERENGGANU (pictured), a travelogue through Malaysia.

US premieres at the festival include Tan Pin Pin’s IN TIME TO COME (pictured), which interrogates a changing Singapore; Ignacio Agüero’s THIS IS THE WAY I LIKE IT II, about Chilean filmmaking during a dictatorship; and José Luis Torres Leiva’s THE WIND KNOWS THAT I’M COMING BACK HOME, which follows a director as he prepares a fiction project about a real-life unexplained disappearance in a remote Chilean archipelago.
