Film Society Week Ahead February 19-25: Oscar, Film Comment Selects and Laura Dern in fishnets


Our Oscar Micheaux series wraps up with some more underrated rarities of pre-war black cinema, including Hallelujah!, directed by King Vidor, the first sound film featuring an all-black cast.

No need to fret about your movie picks when Film Comment Selects! That’s right, the yearly two-week series is here, and more provocative than ever. This week, see debut director Pablo Fendrik’s minimalist thriller The Mugger, as well as two renowned classic documentaries: Demon Lover Diary and Seventeen. Check out the whole line-up.

Another Film Society party is here: Saved from late night 80s cable/USA Up All Night/Z Channel quarantine and slapped right onto the big screen, it’s Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains! Come to see angst-ridden, pre-fame Diane Lane and Laura Dern in fishnets and then stay for the post-punk afterparty with DJs! Sponsored by Viva Radio. RSVP on Facebook or buy tickets.
