The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the lineup for Cinema of Resistance, (August 23-29) a weeklong survey of politically charged films from around the world.

The 16-film presentation includes fiction and documentary films that have responded to urgent circumstances in precisely this spirit: radical in both content and form, ever mindful of the relationship between politics and aesthetics.
