FOREVER at Film Forum until September 25!
Today is the US Theatrical Premiere of Heddy Honigmann's lustrous new film FOREVER. Paris' famed Père-Lachaise Cemetery comes alive through the stories of its visitors. It is not only a place to mourn the loss of loved ones, it is also a unique place where the living connect to the immortal power of art by remembering the artists buried there. The graveyard gradually reveals itself not only as a resting place for the dead, but also as a source of peace and inspiration for the living. For a beautifully written review, check out Stuart Klawans "Grave Thoughts" for The Nation.

The film screens daily until September 25. Go to Film Forum for times, tickets and directions.
