The New York Film Festival has been around for 54 years, and for the first time it’s kicking off the event with a documentary. This year the lineup features 22 main slates and three world premieres. Here are six to keep an eye out for.

 

 

The 13th

Named after the 13th Amendment (which bans slavery except as a punishment for a crime), this documentary is Ava DuVernay’s follow-up to Selma, taking an in-depth look at America’s prison system.

 

 

Paterson

Adam Driver (of Star Wars fame) plays the lead role in a film that explores the crossroads of creativity and everyday life. Driver plays Paterson, a bus driver and amateur poet who lives in Paterson, N.J., home of William Carlos Williams, Lou Costello and Allen Ginsburg.

 

 

20th Century Women

Mark Mills will be premiering 20th Century Women at NYFF, starring Annette Bening, Billy Crudup and Elle Fanning. The comedy is an exploration of late ‘70s middle-class America, following a single mom living the bohemian life in Santa Barbara.

 

 

Hamilton’s America

The country’s hottest musical was recently the subject of a PBS documentary, Hamilton’s America, which takes a behind-the-curtain look at the Broadway production. It begins with Lin-Manuel Miranda performing at the White House Evening of Poetry in 2009, rapping the first track off his Hamilton Mixtape, a song that would later become Hamilton’s opening number.

 

 

I, Daniel Blake

Ken Loach brings his Palme d’Or decorated film I, Daniel Blake to New York, depicting an aging carpenter’s friendship with a young single mother, set against the backdrop of modern Britain and economic austerity.

 

 

The Lost City of Z

James Gray adapts the true tale of Percy Fawcett, who set out into the Amazon in search of the lost city of Z in 1925. Fawcett disappeared, along with his team and son, as well as 100 people who went looking for the man.

Buddha Board

Practicing mindfulness is an increasingly popular and recognized method for reducing stress, but for those needing to keep their hands busy in order to ease their anxieties, mindfulness can be difficult. While fidget toys can work in a pinch, sometimes you just want more. If you’ve tried to keep your mind clear and your hands busy with things like adult coloring books, and you’ve found that still doesn’t do much for you (all that pressure to stay inside the lines!), you might want to try the Buddha Board.
