Raoul Peck's 'Fatal Assistance' among 11 films set to open at Film Society this spring

Forget spring cleaning, a whole batch of new movies are coming to Film Society as the days get longer and the weather (hopefully) gets milder. Eleven films will open their theatrical runs here in the coming months, starting with Raoul Peck's Berlin and Human Rights Watch Film Festival feature Fatal Assistance on February 28. The film joins held-over features In Secret, Jimmy P. and Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq.

The following week, Italian actress turned director Valeria Golino's Honey (Miele) will join the group, while two films from Japanese director Sion Sono, Guilty of Romance and Himizu, will bow later in the month. Freida Lee Mock's documentary Anita, which brought out audiences in droves at last year's Human Rights Watch Film Festival, will begin its theatrical run March 21. It will be joined the same day by Lars von Trier's much awaited (and debated) Nymphomaniac: Volume I starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as, well, a nymphomaniac. The salacious story continues as Nymphomaniac: Volume II wades deeper into carnal indulgence starting April 4.
