First seven set for MoMA slate

New Directors/New Films taps Carruth, Polley

Two Sundance offerings, Shane Carruth’s “Upstream Color” and Sarah Polley’s “Stories We Tell,” are among the first seven pics to be set for Gotham’s New Directors/New Films, which runs March 20-31.

The 42nd annual series, co-programmed by the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, has tapped an initial lineup from around the world including “Hold Back,” Rachid Djaidani’s multi-culti Paris-set take on “Romeo and Juliet,” and “The Color of the Chameleon,” a Bulgarian black comedy from Emil Christov about the secret police.

“Upstream Color,” the anticipated follow-up to Carruth’s 2004 debut “Primer,” centers on a kidnapping entwined with a love story. “Tales” reps Polley’s first shift from narrative into documentary with a look at her mother’s life.

Also set for ND/NF are Tobias Lindholm’s “A Hijacking,” a Danish pic about a cargo ship seized by pirates; JP Sniadecki and Libbie Dina Cohn’s “Peoples Park,” a look at a Chinese community in a single tracking shot; and Matias Pineiro’s “Viola,” an Argentine movie about a group of actresses caught up in a stage production of “Twelfth Night.”
