Sally Potter has long been one of our most unpredictable and idiosyncratic filmmakers. For a special evening, she visited the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present a double feature of her new comic drama The Party, starring Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, and Cherry Jones; and a 25th anniversary screening of her visually dazzling, Oscar-nominated 1993 Virginia Woolf adaptation Orlando, starring Tilda Swinton.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
