From Those That, at a Distance, Resemble Another (2019), dir. Jessica Sarah Rinland (image courtesy TIFF)

Film at Lincoln Center usually presents Art of the Real, its annual showcase for artistically forward-thinking nonfiction film, in the spring. This year, those plans were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and so it’s only now that they’ve been able to put together the 2020 edition — naturally, via an online program. Notable selections this year include 143 Sahara Street, about a remote café in the Algerian desert; The American Sector, about disparate sections of the Berlin Wall around the world; and A Shape of Things to Come, a profile of a survivalist living alone in the Sonoran Desert.

Additionally, here are the films in the lineup that Hyperallergic has already reviewed out of earlier festivals:

Individual titles can be rented for $10, and there are a variety of package options and passes available for purchase as well.

When: November 13–26
Where: Online
