A Hungarian immigrant (Eszter Balint) makes a pit stop on the Lower East Side to stay with slacker cousin John Lurie, whose own émigré status and sense of rootlessness compels him to follow her on the road to Cleveland and Florida in this black-and-white indie milestone. Its beguilingly spare long-take aesthetic and Beckettian deadpan remains a matchless influence on independent film worldwide.

May 24 – Screens with a 4K restoration of Charles Chaplin’s The Immigrant (1917, 30 min), celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2017

A film by Jim Jarmusch
