The Film Society Of Lincoln Center has added programming to the New York Film Festival (NYFF) that includes documentaries and restored works.

The programmes feature a spotlight on three documentary sections – Applied Sciences, Motion Portraits and How Democracy Works Now.

Motion Portraits will focus on cinematic portraiture and includes Nancy Buirski‘s Afternoon Of A Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq and Nadav Schirman’s In The Dark Room.

Applied Science features three films, each built around obsessive projects: Ben Lewis’s Google And The World Brain (pictured), Mark Levinson’s Particle Fever and Teller’s Tim’s Vermeer.

How Democracy Works Now is a series of films by the filmmaking team of Michael Camerini and Shari Robertson who have trained their cameras on immigration reform.

The Revivals section will feature among others Martin Scorsese’s The Age Of Innocence and Arthur Ripley’s The Chase.

The NYFF runs from Sept 27-Oct 13.
