    PRESS RELEASE

    THE FILM SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER announces
    the North American Premiere of Roman Polanski’s CARNAGE
    as Opening Night Gala selection
    for the 2011 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL


    New York, NY, July 29, 2011 - The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today that Roman Polanski’s CARNAGE will make its North American Premiere as the Opening Night film for the upcoming 49th New York Film Festival (September 30 – October 16).

    "From KNIFE IN THE WATER (which screened at the first edition of NYFF in 1963) to REPULSION to THE TENANT, Roman Polanski has shown himself to be an absolute master at making the most restricted spaces come to dramatic life. In CARNAGE, aided by four remarkable performances, he has reached a new pinnacle in his already extraordinary career," says Richard Peña, Selection Committee Chair & Program Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

    Based on Yasmina Reza’s “God of Carnage”, the 2009 Tony Award-winner for Best Play, CARNAGE follows the events of an evening when two Brooklyn couples are brought together after their children are involved in a playground fight. Produced by Said Ben Said, the Sony Pictures Classics release stars Academy Award winners Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz and Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly.

    Commenting on the Opening Night Selection, Rose Kuo, Executive Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, said, "We are delighted to kick off the festival with a quintessential New York story featuring superb performances from a quartet of the finest actors working today. The film will certainly provoke the kind of discussions about contemporary issues that guarantee a memorable night."

    The 17-day New York Film Festival highlights the best in world cinema, featuring top films from celebrated filmmakers as well as fresh new talent. The selection committee, chaired by Peña also includes: Melissa Anderson, Freelance Critic; Scott Foundas, Associate Program Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center; Dennis Lim, Editor, Moving Image Source & Freelance Critic; and Todd McCarthy, Chief Film Critic, The Hollywood Reporter.

    General Public tickets will be available September 12th. There will be an advance ticketing opportunity for Film Society of Lincoln Center Patrons and Members prior to that date. For more information visit www.Filmlinc.com/NYFF or call 212 875 5601.

    I am interested in any specifics about the Ray film, in which he plays himself. His students edited a version to show at Cannes '73 but Ray didn't like it. He re-edited the footage himself in '76 but it is unclear whether he completed the process to his satisfaction.

    Criterion released a box of Nikkatsu films as part of its Eclipse series. It's called Nikkatsu Noir. I wonder if NYFF will show titles other than the ones in this boxset.

    WE CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN: The film has been restored by EYE Film Institute Netherlands and reedited in collaboration with Ray's widow by someone I know who was a student and longtime friend of Ray and appears in the film. Ray himself never finished the reediting. The new version will premiere at Venice, and this will be its American premiere. More about this will be found on the Ray website here.

    I don't know what other Nikkatsu titles will be shown. The complete Nyff program is to be released net week and you will probably find out then.
