 Official Czech Selection for the Oscars starring Harvey Keitel, Udo Kier, Julian Sands, Barry Pepper & Stellan Skarsgård is released on demand today!“An exquisitely crafted work of cinematic art putting radiant black-and-white photography in the service of indescribably shocking images that reflect the darkest of human impulses, as well as the unquenchable will to survive.”
– Wall Street Journal

“A monumental work.” – The Guardian

Based on the acclaimed Jerzy Kosiński novel, THE PAINTED BIRD is a meticulous black and white evocation of one boy’s journey through wild, primitive Eastern Europe at the bloody close of World War II. Separated from his family by war, the boy (newcomer Petr Kotlár, in a riveting performance) wanders through the harsh and brutal countryside, from farm to farm, village to village, battling to survive. Co-starring Harvey Keitel, Udo Kier, Julian Sands, Barry Pepper, and Stellan Skarsgård.

DOC NYC PRO Immersive: Advancing Equity & Inclusion in the Documentary Field
Tue, July 21 2:00-3:30pm
Join DOC NYC PRO for a deep-dive conversation about advancing social equity and inclusion in the documentary field. Guests include Nicole Tsien, board member of Brown Girls Doc Mafia; Denise Greene of Black Public Media; Day Al-Mohamed, independent filmmaker and founding member of FWD-DOC, Karin Chien, independent producer and President of distributor dGenerate Films; Caty Borum Chattoo of The Center for Media & Impact at American University; and Paulina Suarez, Executive Director of Ambulante, Mexico’s traveling documentary film festival.In this 90-minute livestreamed session, we’ll explore crucial questions about social equity in the documentary industry: What has the history of exclusion and marginalization looked like, and what progress has been made over the last decade? What is the necessary work ahead of us in dismantling power structures as they exist, and expanding access to resources for underrepresented filmmakers? What role can affinity-based and identity-based filmmaker communities play in effectively advocating for access to funding, distribution and exhibition for their members—and how can allies support that work? How can festivals bring creators and audiences from historically marginalized communities to the center? And what can the field’s existing power brokers—including funders, distributors, programmers, and critics—do to insist on and push forward more equitable and inclusive practices at every level?Tickets are $15; registrants may participate in the live session, and will also receive access to the recorded session and a written transcript after the livestream. Tickets are non-refundable.

All proceeds from this event will go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
