Lincoln Center’s AtriumFlix series, free monthly screenings of groundbreaking social justice films with intimate conversations with the filmmakers, continues with director John Sayles. Film critic John Anderson will speak with Sayles, and then offer a screening of his new project The Brother From Another Planet, Tuesday, May 14 at 7:00pm at the David Rubenstein Atrium.
John Sayles likes to be known as a storyteller. GO FOR SISTERS is his 18th film, all of which he has also written, and most of which he has edited. He writes fiction, most recently his epic historical novel A Moment in the Sun, which was published by McSweeney’s in May 2011 and has gone into its second printing. His book about the making of MATEWAN, “Thinking in Pictures” is taught in film classes and has never been out of print. Sayles supports his directing career as a “writer for hire” in Hollywood. He has most recently written about KGB assassins, the Tasmanian penal colony, the Rosenberg spy case, the great singer- songwriters Joni Mitchell, Carole King, & Carly Simon, and a famous American brewing dynasty. He directed three music videos for Bruce Springsteen; Born in the USA, I’m on Fire, and Glory Days. He is one of the godfathers– or grandfathers– of the US Independent Film movement.

Just announced: Fourteen site-specific sculptures by Aaron Curry will be on display around Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza, between October 2013 and January 2014.
The installation is the artist’s most ambitious project to date.These monumental, outdoor, site-specific sculptures of painted aluminum will be positioned in orbit around the iconic Revson Fountain. Curry’s boldly-colored structures will transform the space into a sculptural theater-in-the-round and create an immersive environment for viewers visiting the arts complex.
