New Yorker Films

New Yorker Films For over forty-five years, New Yorker Films has been America's leading source for the films on the cutting edge of world cinema. The company was founded in 1965 by Daniel Talbot as an outgrowth of his legendary movie house, the New Yorker Theater.

Unable to obtain several crucial foreign titles, Talbot was obliged to import them himself. Early acquisitions such as Bertolucci's BEFORE THE REVOLUTION, Godard's LES CARABINIERS, and Sembene's BLACK GIRL established New Yorker's still vital tradition of presenting the world's most innovative, artistically significant, and politically engaged films. Controversial and challenging works considered

“Shaping personal and geographical history into sun-drenched dollops, the director Heinz Brinkmann fashions a charmingly quirky guide to his island home…[According] to one enthusiastic real estate developer, “Usedom is sexy”...“Usedom is cool.” I wouldn’t dream of disagreeing.” - Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times

Heinz Brinkmann’s idiosyncratic documentary gives us a guided tour of a Baltic island with a fractured history.

Originally released by New Yorker Films in 2008, STILL LIFE was a smash hit at the IFC Center downtown, garnering a rave review from Manohla Dargis in the New York Times: “Elegantly photographed. Sublime, soulful art. A modern master of postmodern discontent, Jia Zhang-ke is among the most strikingly gifted filmmakers working today. His work exists on a continuum with the modernist masters, among other influences, but he is very much an artist of his own specific time and place.”

OPENS FRIDAY, 9/25, AT NYC'S FILM FORUM (on Virtual Cinema only--please support your local arthouse cinema by buying a ticket)

Still Life, winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 2006, is a unique hybrid of documentary and fiction.

As many of you know, Radu Jude's feature film "I DO NOT CARE IF WE GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS BARBARIANS"--which ranked on "Best of 2019" lists in both the NY Times and the LA Times--came out on DVD this past Tuesday. It's almost certainly the one film on these lists that has been seen by the least viewers in the US, due to limited theatrical distribution opportunities.

For those of you who usually find our new VOD releases on iTunes, this one will be a bit different: We're opting for a direct rental or download-to-own from Vimeo On Demand instead.

Please see the newly minted web page here, and please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or issues with the stream.

Video Librarian calls ÁGA "slow-paced but majestic, it ends with a timely indictment of “civilization” and the wounds it has inflicted on the Earth. Highly recommended. Editor’s Choice." 4/4 stars!

Watch A GERMAN YOUTH (Une jeunesse allemande), dir. by Jean-Gabriel Périot Online | Vimeo On Demand

In spite of the fever dreams of Fox News anchors, virtually all political terrorism in the Western world these days is fomented by rightwing extremists.

But in the '70s, the opposite was true.

Check out A GERMAN YOUTH, Jean-Gabriel Périot's clear-eyed chronology of the radicalization of the postwar generation in Germany. If you missed it during its one-week run in Brooklyn, you can catch it now at your convenience, via Vimeo On Demand

In the 1960s, the young democracy of West Germany was embarrassed by its N**i past, and ingrown in its role as imperialist and capitalist outpost faced by its communist…
