ACF 1837: NEW DIRECTORS/NEW FILMS 2013 begins tomorrow

When: March 20–31, 2013
Where: The Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center
and The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1 at MoMA

Now in its 42nd year, the renowned New Directors/New Films festival, presented jointly by The Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging or not-yet-established filmmakers from around the world.

Here's some info about two Asian-related films that will be shown:

Directed by Luo Li
U.S. Premiere!
Director Luo Li in person at all screenings!

In this crafty reworking of part of the 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West, Emperor Li Shimin is now a bureaucratic boss in a big city, where the crooked Dragon King’s attempt to change the weather has backfired and condemned him to death.

Directed by Libbie D. Cohn & J.P. Sniadecki
New York Premiere!
Directors JP Sniadecki and Libbie Dina Cohn in person at all screenings!

An immersive, inquisitive visit to the People's Park in Chengdu, China created in a single virtuoso tracking shot, this film scrutinizes the joys of communal play, exercise and free time.
