Nonfiction Film Festival: Screening Of Acid Forest + Q&A

Map Location

Join the Film Society of Lincoln Center for our annual nonfiction showcase Art of the Real, featuring a special screening of ACID FOREST Q&A with Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė and Anton Vidokle This wry reinvention of the nature documentary spies upon the local fauna of Lithuania’s Curonian Spit, observing from the same remove the cormorants who nest there and the human tourists who come to puzzle at their curious existence. What looks like a gray, apocalyptic wasteland on Lithuania’s otherwise scenic Baltic coastline—denuded of foliage by the birds’ highly acidic defecations—becomes a Rorschach blot for passing human visitors from all over the world, whose wildly divergent speculations about the cormorants and their habitat comically reveal the human species’ own ambivalent relationship with the natural world. Preceded by:Citizens of the Cosmos This film is screening as part of the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s annual nonfiction showcase, Art of the Real. Hailed by IndieWire as "one of the world’s most essential showcases for game-changing, rule-breaking, genre-busting new cinema," the celebrated cinematic event returns April 18–28 to present a vibrant slate of new works by internationally acclaimed filmmakers and award-winning debuts from around the world. Presented with support from MUBI. View the complete lineup here.
