Win Tickets: Yael Naim at Highline Ballroom December 8th

Eight years ago, Steve Jobs handpicked one of the most unlikely songs to soundtrack an Apple spot. Whimsical and modest, Yael Naïm’s folk-pop “New Soul” was more willfully analog than tech-savvy. But mostly, it was catchy—catapulting around the globe, from the northern and southern to eastern and western hemispheres. In the U.S. alone, it sat on three Billboard charts: the Hot 100, Adult Alternative, and Adult Top 40. “It was,” Naïm says sweetly, “a miracle.”

New Series at FIAF: "Poetic and Political: The Cinema of Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche"

Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche tells powerful stories of oppression, resistance, and rebellion. The Franco-Algerian filmmaker’s trans-national perspective enriches his cinema profoundly. A truly independent filmmaker, Ameur-Zaïmeche writes, directs, produces, and stars in all his films. This low-budget, guerrilla style of production allows him to depict realities often misrepresented or ignored in mainstream film. The result is a deceptively simple cinema that descends from the likes of Pier Paulo Passolini and Jean Renoir, equal parts poetic and political. This November & December, see a full retrospective of his extraordinary work at CinéSalon.
