Special 10th Anniversary Screening on Monday, October 22, 7 pm at Film Society Lincoln Center

LOVE
"One of the touchstones of American nonfiction cinema. "
New York Film Festival
 
An official selection of the 2002 New York Film Festival, LOVE & DIANE 
screened only once on a Saturday morning but soon emerged as an early masterpiece in a documentary-rich decade. Director Jennifer Dworkin originally met Diane through her nieces and nephew, whom she taught in a photography workshop for a Harlem homeless shelter. Dworkin would film Diane and her daughter Love over several years, developing a bond of deep trust. The result is a rich, subtle, and moving portrait of a family facing enormous challenges, marked by Dworkin's clear-eyed empathy and deepened through excerpts from the family's own Super 8 footage.
 
The film will celebrate 10 years on Monday, October 22 at Film Society Lincoln Center at 7 pm. Both Jennifer Dworkin and Diane will be in attendance. Q&A to follow with Film Comment senior editor Nicolas Rapold. For tickets, click here.
