The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced the 16th edition of the Film Comment Selects program, an eclectic group of films both current and classic. This year’s program will open with the New York premiere of Terence Davies’ “Sunset Song” on February 17, a romantic tale set on a Scottish farm on the cusp of World War II. It will end on February 24 with a screening of “Golden Eighties” in tribute to Chantal Akerman, who collaborated with an unusual group of individuals, including former “Cahiers du Cinema” critic Pascal Bonitzer and “Desperately Seeking Susan” screenwriter Leora Barish, for the film.

Some other highlights are a two-film spotlight on Charles Bronson, with screenings of “Breakout” (1974) and “Rider on the Rain” (1969), and four films from Andrzej Żuławski, including the U.S. Premiere of his latest film “Cosmos.” The program will include the U.S. Premieres of “Diary of a Chambermaid,” “La peur” and “The Paternal House.”

The program will run from February 17-24 at Lincoln Center. Here is the complete schedule. Synopses are available on the Film Society of Lincoln Center website:
