Writer-director RaMell Ross’ poetic vision of Hale County, Alabama, stitches together snapshots of everyday life in the rural community, where he moved in 2009 to become a basketball coach and photography teacher. The film — which picked up an Oscar nomination, in addition to a Peabody and a special jury prize at Sundance — was made from nearly 1,300 hours of footage.
On Wednesday, Ross will join Film at Lincoln Center for a live Q&A about the documentary. You can watch the film for free on-demand through June 25. More information about how to stream here.
Author Megha Majumdar will speak about her debut novel “A Burning” with Maris Kreizman. The book tells the entwining stories of three characters who are each in search of new personal heights. Set in contemporary India, the novel begins with a blazing fire that burns the course for the rest of the tale. Further propelling this spark is the statement posted on Facebook by a character named Jivan: “If the police didn’t help ordinary people like you and me, if the police watched them die, doesn’t that mean … that the government is also a terrorist?”
Enjoy a bit of Broadway this Thursday with an encore presentation of the 2017 production “Falsettos.” Created by James Lapine and William Finn, the three-act musical centers on a gay man named Marvin and his family — which includes his wife (who becomes his ex-wife), Trina; his lover, Whizzer; and his son, Jason. This live-captured revival of the 1992 original stars Christian Borle, Stephanie J. Block, Andrew Rannells and Brandon Uranowitz.
Lincoln Center invites viewers to join a free sing-a-long watch party on social media by using the tag #FalsettosSingALong.
