Art of the Real

by

Co­programmed by Dennis Lim and Rachael Rakes, this second annual installment of “Art of the Real” promises an even more ambitious, expansive view of documentary work being made around the world. In addition to its main slate — the opening­night lineup includes U.S. and/or North American premieres of João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata’s Iec Long, Eduardo Williams’s I Forgot, and Matt Porterfield’s Take What You Can Carry — the series includes two indispensable sidebar programs: one a retrospective of the work of the French director Agnès Varda, the other a group of films dealing with the method of reenactment (including Peter Watkins’s 1974 Edvard Munch and James Benning’s 1986 Landscape Suicide).
