Programmers' Notebook: In Case You Missed It

Series Site

As best-of-the-year lists proliferate like superhero sequels, we, too, are taking stock of another extraordinarily rich year in cinema by revisiting some of the overlooked gems that may have gotten lost in the shuffle but are more than worthy of your time. From breakthrough features by up-and-coming directors to bold visions by established auteurs, works of bracing Brazilian neorealism to a Japanese avant-pop love story, these are the under-the-radar revelations that moved, provoked, challenged, entertained, and stayed with us long after first viewing.

The third in a recurring series in which members of BAM’s film programming team respond to a thought-provoking theme.
